Mindy Lam is a Chinese-American jewelry artist that weaves various metals into her signature metal lace with Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones, and other precious metals. Originally born on a chicken farm in Hong Kong, the glamour and fantasy Mindy creates now, is a far cry from her childhood experiences. Her work reflects the craftsmanship of the classic couture houses of old, but with a refreshingly modern edge with the fusion of her signature florals and metals.
Designing for over 18 years, Lam was a huge favorite at Henri Bendel in New York City for almost 10 years, she has been featured in the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Elle, Brides Magazine, Glamour, People, Life & Style, L'Officiel, Vogue Italia and many more. Companies and charities have included the National Cherry Blossom Festival, W Hotel, American Heart Association, Texas Children’s Hospital, St. Jude, Prevent Cancer, and of course the National Kidney Foundation.
In 2010, her business came to a screeching halt after her heart stopped and the diagnosis of end stage kidney disease. The next 3 years included a rigorous dialysis schedule, and she lost everything including her home, due to her inability to work. Finally in 2013, when her daughter was of age, she donated her kidney and the story made front page Yahoo News.
As a kidney disease survivor and transplant recipient from her beloved daughter, Mindy Lam’s giving back is in a more purposeful way and is more important than ever. In 2016, she successfully relaunched her brand with much fanfare after making a full recovery. Because of her life changing experience, Mindy has now incorporated a philanthropic component to the brand through special collaborations to continue to uplift and spread love and hope to others.
