The CHRISTUS St. Patrick Healthy Living Marketplace will give shoppers a free Ne'Qwa Christmas ornament with a purchase of $75 or more beginning December 2.
These hand-painted ornaments have been created exclusively for CHRISTUS Hospitals. A limited supply is available and each ornament is numbered.
Ne'Qwa is the Chinese term for hand-painting on the inside of mouth-blown glass. From outlining to shading to color application, all work is done in free hand by skilled artisans from remote villages throughout China. Depending on the intricacy, one ornament can take several days to complete.
