Ray Boudreaux knows about making things. By day he is an architect, and after hours he creates beautiful rosaries. He's been at it for more than 20 years and most recently revived his blacksmith skills to forge the crosses on the handmade pieces. Prices range from $50 to $140 for rosaries, many of which are made using olive wood beads from Jerusalem. The perfect gift for the Christmas season. For more info, email him at [email protected].
