Pan Shixue Silver Jewelry is one of the ethnic silver jewelry brands in Guizhou. It combines the inheritance of intangible cultural heritage craftsmanship with industrial development. The founder, Mr. Pan Shixue, established the brand with the initial intention of integrating the "Three Rural Revitalizations" reform with the exploration, protection of intangible cultural heritage, and increased employment, aiming to achieve the reconstruction of artisan processes, revitalization of production capacity, and earning income at home. This is one of the key directions that Pan Shixue Silver Jewelry brand focuses on.

As a national intangible cultural heritage brand, Pan Shixue Silver Jewelry integrates industrial development, craftsmanship inheritance, and educational guidance. On one hand, it promotes the development of the industry by training and employing artisans in Maliao Silver Craftsman Village through the inheritance of intangible cultural heritage craftsmanship, bringing Guizhou's intangible cultural heritage out of the mountains and into the national spotlight. On the other hand, through the "Three Rural Revitalizations + Technical Services" model, it reconstructs artisan processes and production capacity, encouraging more people to join the handicraft industry and empowering more artisans to become inheritors of intangible cultural heritage. It aims to transform their lives from migrant workers to prosperous individuals, from staying at home to engaging in handicraft industries.

Pan Shixue Silver Jewelry brand is under Guizhou Pan Shixue Cultural Creative Company, established on May 12, 2021. The company is located in Maliao Silver Craftsman Village, Xijiang Town, Leishan County, Qiandongnan Prefecture, Guizhou Province. It mainly focuses on the development, management, and cultural tourism resource utilization of Miao silver forging techniques, as well as the development, production, and sales of Miao silver jewelry cultural and creative products. The flagship products of "Pan Shixue Silver Jewelry" include pure silver bracelet series, wine accessories series, tea set series, pendant series, handicraft collection series, silver embroidery series, and more. In terms of craftsmanship, Miao silver forging techniques have been listed as a national intangible cultural heritage.

It has developed several major product techniques, including engraving, wire drawing, and embossing. These techniques showcase the most profound and irreplaceable Guizhou intangible cultural heritage handicrafts to the nation.
