Shi Studio is an exciting business that combines classic beauty and innovative design. This craft venture began in 2004 as Cory Judge developed a line of accessories based on the singular idea of fusing luscious silks and shining glass. Since then, Shi Studio has evolved and grown to incorporate the use of leather, silver, semi precious gems and brass in organic yet contemporary designs. Currently Cory’s passion is finding antique silk from the late Qing Dynasty and framing these remnants within the Shi pieces to highlight, not only the incredible beauty of the hand woven silk, but to capture and share a piece of history.
Cory Judge infuses everything she does with style and zest for life. From her beginnings as a stained glass artist with her company Epiphany Designs, she has been inspired to create daily moments of beauty for her customers and remains endlessly fascinated with colour, light, shape, texture and design. She is in love with the transformative power of beauty and is passionate about facilitating people’s expression of themselves through fashion.
Affinity for the design influences of Asia infuses Cory’s work, while her roots as a West Coast designer in the Independent craft scene, lends fresh authenticity to her journey in the world of fashion. Cory is dedicated to working together with Kyla, Shi Studio’s leather designer and Mark as studio assistant in an innovative and playful environment, and the resulting accessories reflect this in their originality.
Cory Judge with Shi Studio has been crafting and designing since 2004. Starting small at local markets and outdoor events, Shi now also occupies space in dozens of leading Canadian retail outlets and is a reliable presence at many of the country’s top shows.WEBSITE
