About Mindy Lam:  An artist and couture jewelry designer for over 15 years, that weaves various metals into her signature metal lace with Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones and sculpted sterling silver. Originally born in Hong Kong, she came to the states in the 1990′s. It is from her growing up in China, a land of roses, peonies, orchids and camellias that has given her such a sensitivity to nature.  Her works reflect the craftsmanship of the classic couture houses of old but with a refreshingly modern edge, with the fusion of her florals and metals.

Mindy has been featured in the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston as featured designer during the Picasso Black and White Exhibit, Elle, Brides Magazine, Glamour, People and Vogue Italia.  She is well known for her charitable commissions including Macy’s for the American Heart Association.
