The Eternal Orb

  • The Eternal Orb is handcrafted from optically pure Pyrex glass.  Ashes are fist suspended within layers of glass, then spun into a unique spiral pattern, and finally backed with a color of your choice.

  • • The Orb is roughly 2 ½" in diameter (about the size of a billiard ball) 

    • A free Collection Kit is provided with every order for the safe & secure delivery of ashes to Grateful Glass

    • Each Orb includes elegant presentation packaging as well as a personalized Certificate of Authenticity. A lucite stand is included at no additional charge and an LED light stand is available for purchase

    • Because of the handcrafted nature of our products, some variation in color and design/dispersion of ashes should be expected. Likewise, each set of ashes reacts uniquely when encased in hot glass. As a result, certain sets of ashes may be less visible or show up as a slightly different color compared to our sample images. 

  • Shipping is a 3 step process. 1) After placing your order, a collection kit will be mailed to you. 2) You will then return the collection kit complete with your loved one’s ashes to the Grateful Glass studio. 3) Finally, we handcraft your keepsake to order and ship it to you along with any unused ashes.

    Shipping of the collection kit as well as your finished keepsake are included for FREE with every order. The return shipment of the collection kit is not included with your order. We have found for the most secure return possible, the kit must be brought in person to your local Post Office for processing.

I am forever "GRATEFUL" that my path led to me to this one of a kind artist, Matt Olian, who I wo...

I cannot say enough positive things about Matt Olian at Grateful Glass. Through a difficult time in my life he managed to create something so incredibly unique and beautiful that I will have forever by my heart. The process of losing a loved one is something that we can never truly prepare for and in researching memorial jewelry I came across many different websites but something about Grateful Glass stood out from the rest.

Matt is more than just an exceptional artist, he is also a compassionate person who treats his customers with the utmost respect and care during what can be a very emotional process. He took the time to meet with me in person and walked me through every step which is only a small example of how this artist genuinely cares about what he is creating and who he is creating that for. His kindness, warmth and professionalism were conveyed through every exchange that we had.

I ended up ordering not only my forever pendant in Onyx, but decided to order an orb in Cobalt as well. When I opened the boxes I couldn't help but cry, not only because of the loss that I felt but seeing the absolute stunning beauty that words (and even pictures) will never convey about the meaning of these phenomenal creations.

The Eternal Orb is amazing!

I lost my childhood pet and wanted something special to remember her by since she gave me so much love over the 9 years I had her. Grateful Glass allowed me to do that. The necklace charm is very special and Matt and his team were very quick and respectful about the process. Will DEFINITELY do business with them again the next inevitable time. Will even be looking to have a custom piece done. Give them a chance to do something wonderful for you.

Matt is a wonderful artist to make this cherished keepsake.

I found Grateful Glass after reading a news report. I decided to purchased an orb. The way you send the ashes is so reassuring, beautifully done and shows a lot of caring. My beautiful husband died in September 2011. I wanted some way to keep a little of his ashes, the orb is the unique way I will have him forever. I am going to purchase another one for my sister who also lost her husband.

Beautiful artwork, classy packaging, and attentive communication! A+

My Grateful Glass is a very special memento of my beloved cat, Walter. As I look into the globe his ashes remind me that he is always close to me and a constant part of my life. When people see it, I get the opportunity to tell them about him, which brings me happiness to continually share his story with others. The work was exquisite, timely, and a true reflection of his beloved place in my heart.

Simply Amazing!

After the passing of my grandma I was searching for a necklace that would allow me to always have her with me. I stumbled upon The Grateful Glass website and was amazed at the unique jewelry selection they had. The order process was seamless and I received my necklace quicker than expected. It’s absolutely gorgeous and the website doesn’t do it justice. Just last night alone I’ve received numerous compliments on how beautiful it is! Thank you so much for making this a wonderful experience! I’d highly recommend them!

A Powerful Piece

My dog’s energy is encapsulated. She’s no longer here, but her very upbeat energy, somehow is and it surrounds me.The ashes have a sparkly quality which is magical. It’s like a looking-glass with a snow storm inside of it. It’s amber purple and the ashes are evenly spaced, appearing starlike. The craftsmanship is excellent.

Perfection!

Grateful Glass has been absolutely amazing to work with from start to finish. Matt is so nice to work and uses his talent to make the most perfect and heartfelt items. I will always recommend Grateful Glass to anyone needing a special way to remember a loved one after a loss. The best!

Fantastic experience, customer service, and finished product.

Grateful Glass helped make a devastating time in my life a little easier. I chose to have the Perpetual Pendant made in cobalt blue, petite size for my 29 year old horse, Blue. It is everything I hoped it would be and more. I had Blue for 14 years, and the bond I shared with him was unlike any other I’ve had with an animal (and I’ve known many). It’s so special to know that the piece you have created is truly one of a kind, much like the relationship you had with your loved one or pet. The whole process from start to finish was incredibly easy and so fast. The collection kit comes with helpful step-by-step directions for shipping the cremation ashes back to Grateful Glass. As someone who had never shipped cremation ashes before, these directions were much appreciated. I got an email as soon as they were received. My necklace was made and sent back to me so quickly, and the remaining ashes were packaged very respectfully. Thank you so much for creating this necklace for me, and for giving a piece of Blue back to me in an incredibly special and unique way.

Perfect remembrance

I just wanted to take a moment and thank Greatfull Glass for being able to help me keep a memory of my CiCi with me always. For 16 years I was able to have a best friend in my life and now she can still be by my side. I am one of those people that research stuff ad nauseam. I finally decided on Greatfull Glass because of a good amount of choices in how I wanted CiCi to be with me and colors available to resemble her color. Quality Pyrex glass, nice, understated, clean designs and the exceptional support given to me helped make up my mind, finally. The care taken with her ashes, the support given when I had questions, the presentation of the pendant and necklace exceptional! Thank you, so much.
