“Hearts & Hands for Hospice” Bracelet Benefits Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island

strength braceletPROVIDENCE, R.I. – Internationally acclaimed artist and designer Elaine Porter Clare has designed Hearts & Hands for Hospice spiral bracelets to benefit Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island, the state’s leader in hospice and palliative care since 1976.

Inspired by the recent loss of her father, Seldon Nelson Porter, Porter Clare developed Hearts and Hands for Hospice “in grateful appreciation for the compassionate care given to her and her family by Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island.”

compassionbraceletPorter Clare has blended Swarovski crystals, semi-precious beads and hand-crafted glass into spiral, one size fits all bracelets. They are available in four colors, each carrying a different meaning.

Black and white represents “strength”; blue and white, “compassion”; purple, “spirit”; and earth tones, “comfort”. Each bracelet is accented with a silver seagull charm and an “Elaine Porter Collection” charm. They are packaged in a blue velvet drawstring bag with a memory card to honor loved ones.
