Syracuse mother searching for lost bracelet containing daughter’s ashes

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — A Syracuse woman is asking for the public’s help after losing a sentimental piece of jewelry she says is priceless. The bracelet is filled with her daughter’s ashes and has her signature.

“She was the oldest, and we just grew up together. She was a sweetheart,” said Suzanne of Syracuse.

A mother-daughter bond like no other.

“This is what she wrote on every card. She would always send me notes, and she always wrote that. ‘Love you, mom, Kimberly,’” said Suzanne.

Her daughter’s signature is now permanently on Suzanne’s arm. Something she had done after losing Kimberly to cancer nearly six years ago. But just over a year ago, Suzanne came up with the idea of having a jeweler make a special bracelet in memory of her daughter.

“I was with him one day, and I said, ‘Can you ever make me a bracelet other than this heavy thing?’ And he came up with that…best thing I did,” said Suzanne.

Filled with Kimberly’s ashes and her signature, it’s a sentimental bracelet Suzanne has worn every day…up until just last month.

On December 14, 2023, Suzanne said she left her home at 11:00 a.m. wearing the bracelet. She also worked out that afternoon at Metric Fitness in Downtown Syracuse.

“At 3:00, I noticed it was missing, and then I started looking through everything, the office, outside, inside, my car,” said Suzanne.

She’s even contacted police, checking pawn shops and jewelry stores, and Suzanne is still searching. She’s hoping her prayers to St. Anthony will be answered soon and someone will kindly return the bracelet she says is priceless.

“It means something to me. Maybe to no one else, but her ashes are in it, and that’s her. It means a lot to me to have that,” said Suzanne.

No matter what, Suzanne says she will continue to search until the bracelet is found.
