Rutgers University English major Lauren Dorey runs Golden Godess Gems, a small jewelry business that specializes in wire-wrapped crystals that purport to have spiritual healing properties. Dorey began her business through her Instagram account, @goldengoddessgems, where she posts pictures of each handmade piece, and also accepts custom orders.
She sells rings, necklaces and earrings. Each piece features a unique crystal.
When she’s not making jewelry, Dorey is either belly dancing, writing or playing her guitar.
