Mindy Lam is a Chinese-American jewelry artist that weaves various metals into her signature metal lace with crystals, semi-precious stones, and other precious metals.
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 through her year round charity collections and special collaborations. In 2016, she successfully relaunched her brand with much fanfare after making a full recovery. This May, Lam will experience her ultimate dream come true with her first museum solo exhibitions.
Designing for over 18 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.
