Designer Mindy Lam was honored and thrilled when she heard the National Kidney Foundation Serving the National Capital Area, was spotlighting her story and journey of being a kidney disease survivor and transplant recipient.
As inspiration, Mindy Lam used the National Kidney Foundation’s color and mission for the basis of the special NKF edition of the collection styles. Expanding beyond the kidney bean logo, she wanted to create a piece of jewelry that was classic and would generate conversation. She also brought back the original pricing from when she first began almost 20 years ago.
The black center represents a diseased kidney and the orange represents the support and community that the National Kidney Foundation and others provide which creates the necessary healing. The pieces personify the beauty and strength of each kidney patient.
