Weinan Pan is a jewellery designer and craftsman from China who settled in London 13 years ago. Her handmade jewellery fits in daily-life, trips and special occasions for Urban Nomadic explorers whose adornments are an integral part of their self-expression.

Pan’s family ancestry can be traced back to the ancient Khitan Nomad who inhabited areas corresponding to Heilongjiang Province, the Northeastern-most region of China and the borders with Mongolia and Siberia. Traditionally these people believe in Shamans and Tibetan Buddhism. Pan was also introduced to Tibetan Buddhism at a very early age through her parents and Tibetan master monks. Since then, she has been fascinated by the Himalayan culture and nature, which influence her aesthetic and are present in her jewellery work.

Like her ancestors, she travels widely collecting experiences, artefacts and talismans to inform her ongoing nomadic journey and to connect her more closely to the spirit of nature. Pan’s over 2 years on-going journey began in Tibet where she trekked Mt. Everest Base Camp and continued in the Swiss Alps and Scottish Highlands. From the research of Nomadic lifestyle under extreme conditions, Pan found an answer of how to remain peaceful and authentic in spite of obstacles: following the rules-of-nature and the wisdom of live-in-the-moment. By nature, sterling silver, the main material of Pan’s jewellery, weathers and oxidises. Additionally exploited by experimental finishes, the appearance of Pan’s Jewellery continues changing with time and with wear. It represents a sense of contentment achieved through honest reflection and appreciation for who one truly is.

Firmly believing in environmental and social contribution, Pan uses only recycled silver, gold, and ethically sourced gemstones.
