Mother and daughter Renee and Kassandra Shedlowski will display their rock, gemstone and fossil collection at the Back Mountain Memorial Library in August. Most of the items in their rock and gem collection were purchased by the family. They also go fossil-hunting in the woods in search of local finds.

Renee states, “I am fascinated with all the different shapes and colors made by nature. Nature makes things more beautiful than mankind could.”

Kassandra adds, “I enjoy seeing all the different types of rocks and gems.”

Renee, along with her husband, Steven Shedlowski, have a family-owned rock and gemstone jewelry store in Dallas. Steven has been making jewelry since he was 12 years old learning the skill from his parents.

Renee adds, “We have all become fascinated with the stones.”

She and Kassandra both assist with the jewelry making “by working with the beads.”
