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.

So Appreciative of Grateful Glass

I didn't know what I wanted for my 28 year old son, but was drawn to glass pieces, because I wanted to be able to "see him". I ordered the Forever Pendant because it is intended to be with me the rest of my life. I also got the Eternal Orb to put on his urn. The pieces are beautiful. The pendant is discreet, nobody would know unless you told them. They give me comfort and wearing the pendant helps me a lot. Matt is so thoughtful and respectful. I am so happy I chose Matt and recommended his work to all.

A Beautiful Memorial!

Matthew did a beautiful job on the glass memorial piece I selected! His communication was clear, considerate and timely. I would, and probably will, order from him again.
Thanks!!

This is our 3rd order - Matt's work is incredible, I wholeheartedly recommend!

Our family lost 3 pets in recent years, and each time we've turned to Grateful Glass to create a keepsake Orb. I can't speak highly enough about Matt's work! He's an amazingly talented artist, and we are beyond impressed with the beauty and complexity of each Orb he created. It’s hard to describe in words how special these pieces are. Matt is a dream to work with – he’s kind, compassionate, collaborative, and he truly goes above and beyond. I wholeheartedly recommend Grateful Glass to anyone searching for the perfect way to memorialize a loved one. I can honestly say that the orbs have helped our young kids deal with grief over losing a pet. They’ve told me that the pets aren’t really “gone” – their spirit is always with us, and they’re reminded of that every time they see the Orbs. My heart is happy. Thank you Grateful Glass!!!

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.

So Beautiful!

Love the piece of my husband I can have with me always! <3

Quality & Craftsmanship Are Outstanding

The quality & craftsmanship are outstanding. I had wanted to order a necklace for my friend for years but finally did several weeks ago. I had questions before I ordered so sent an email. I got a reply within a couple hours with answers. I had more questions so sent another email and shortly afterward got answers. Everything from start to finish happened very fast. I’d read many of the customer reviews. I agree with everybody. Matt Olian is an Artisan that produces quality products. He is also a man of integrity.

In memory of Chloe

I am beyond happy with my pendant. First, I want to thank Matt for being flexible. My boyfriend was able to collaborate with him and get a gift certificate specifically for me for our anniversary to apply to the purchase of my necklace. The turn around time from the time I shipped her ashes out to the time getting my piece back was less than a week. AND, the package was shipped with a cremated remains sticker on it. This was especially important to me because my town’s post office sucks and always loses things. This made me feel at ease. My necklace is beautiful and unique and feels like my girl. I could not be happier.

Forever Grateful

My wife, Glenda, passed away from cancer in December 2018. I began searching online for jewelry I could wear to remind me of her, and I found Grateful Glass. It seemed so perfect to be able to have a piece of blown glass with Glenda’s ashes in it around my neck because on our vacations together we often collected artisan crafted glass and wooden pieces as mementos of our travels. I ordered the cobalt blue forever pendant, and as soon as I opened it, I knew I had made the right choice. It is beautiful. It looks like the night sky filled with millions of stars; the kind of sky that Glenda would have marveled at because of its natural beauty. It was the simple things in life that she loved so much, like gazing at stars and watching the sun set, and when I hold my pendant in my hand, I am reminded of how beautiful those simple things can be. Thank you for not only giving me the gift of my beautiful pendant, but for giving me the gift of memories with my wife. That is truly the best gift for which I am forever grateful.

Stunning Perpetual Pendant

Matthew, Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the beautiful pendant which keeps Rocky, my beloved boston terrier, close to my heart. I cried happy tears when I received it and I have yet to take it off. I have received numerous compliments and inquiries as to where I received it. I love it and am so grateful to you for your compassion in creating this one of a kind piece of jewelry. Thank you!
