Rebecca Strzelec finds inspiration in what other people throw away.  A professor of Visual Arts at Penn State-Altoona, and the 2016-2017 Penn State Laureate, she describes herself as a "rescuer of objects that are underappreciated."  Her sculptural jewelry, which is fueld by yard sales and made using 3-D printing, is prized on and off the body.
