Becky Blair loves color and texture, and plays with both while creating beautiful jewelry pieces under her business name “inSpiraled.” The seasoned artist will be joining us this year at the Canandaigua Art & Music Festival, to showcase and sell her jewelry during the 3-day festival.
Working in a studio in her 16th floor condo, Becky uses the eclectic pieces in her workspace, including repurposed furniture and artwork collected from her travels, to inspire the pieces she creates. In the past, Becky has worked on paintings, art dolls, and fiber arts. It is jewelry, however, where she truly shines.

Recently, a drive through Pennsylvania and parts of New York inspired Becky to create a red leather collar with blue leather flowers. Drawing from the blue skies, green hills, and red barns she saw on her trip, the piece was finished within just a few days and sold before even making it to a show!
“Over the years, I have learned to stay true myself and to make pieces that I feel will stand the test of time. I have no interest in following trends, or creating a trendy body of work. I don’t want to wear what everyone else is wearing.” – Becky Blair
We at the art festival are excited to see what Becky plans to showcase at our event in July. Working with a variety of sterling silver, patterned leather, gemstones, and found objects, every piece of wearable artwork from inSpiraled is a unique treasure.
