He has won many national, provincial and municipal honors and has held many exhibitions at home and abroad. "When the ancients are discretionary, the clouds cut the moon, the flowers and plants are different, and the pens are wonderful." The famous scholar Zhao Puchu’s praise for the gold and silver color embroidery has made many people know that Ningbo has such a subtle skill. Originally known as “Gold and Silver Embroidery”, the gold and silver color embroidery is a piece of embroidery with different patterns on the silk with gold and silver thread and other silk threads. It is one of the Han folk handicrafts. As one of the most traditional women in the “three golds and one inlays” of Ningbo, the gold and silver color embroidery has a distinct regional character and unique market demand. It was once brilliant, but under the impact of globalization and modernization, once Faced with a loss. At the age of 19, he began to learn the fascinating pearls made by gold and silver color embroidery, and he has deep feelings for this craft. Around 2000, a large number of embroidery factories in Ningbo closed down, and Qunqun Zhu was in the eyes of the heart, so he had the idea of ​​reviving the skills of gold and silver color embroidery. Gold and silver color embroidery is a delicate work, all based on eyesight, hand power and heart. In addition to delving into the gold and silver embroidery skills, Yan Qunzhu also traveled to Jiangsu, Sichuan and other places to learn about the inheritance and protection measures of handicrafts such as Su embroidery and Qiang embroidery. In 2009, Yan Qunzhu registered and established Ningbo Jinyin Color Embroidery Co., Ltd. in the lower street of Zhangzhou, and invested 28 million yuan. In early 2011, it established the Ningbo Jinyin Caixiu Art Museum in the Innovation 128 Park. The Museum of Art has collected more than 550 pieces of outstanding gold and silver embroidered embroidery since the Ming and Qing Dynasties. It also cherishes the gold and silver color embroidery products such as “Zhucheng Fengqing Tu” and “Qingming Shanghe Tu” independently developed by Qi Qunzhu. In May 2011, Ningbo Jinyin Caixiu was included in the national intangible cultural heritage list with its rich local characteristics, unique folk style and rich cultural connotations. As a Zhejiang-level non-legacy exhibition base and a productive inheritance base, the Jinyin Caixiu Art Museum has made great efforts in inheritance. Five years ago, Yan Qunzhu also used the "school-enterprise cooperation" approach to start classes in Ningbo Deaf School, Zhangzhou Art School, Song Yuqiao Middle School and other schools to bring the gold and silver color embroidery production process to the campus. In the past few years, Qunqun Zhu has been working hard for the marketization of gold and silver color embroidery. In order to broaden the market of gold and silver color embroidery, she made a fuss about design and creativity and developed a series of products. She said: "Like other non-legacy projects in Ningbo, taking the market and taking the road of industrialization is one of the main ways for the gold and silver color embroidery skills to be passed down and protected."
