For years my dad when always send me websites to places that could turn ashes into stone. I did not like the thought of not being able to see the ashes. Then I saw ashes could be placed into glass and I thought that was a better option. I did not think I would need this for a long time however my father passed away a month ago from flu pneumonia. I found grateful glass online and knew this was what I need to honor my father. Matt has been amazing and his work is beautiful. My pendent is unique and I can see the ashes throughout. I decided on the Amber and purple to represent the Amber for his life and purple for his eternal rest. I am forever grateful to have a piece of my beloved daddy with me always!
I love my jewelry piece that was handcrafted for me. It’s soo beautiful and reminds me how beautiful my mother was. She unfortunately lost her battle with cancer and didn’t have a chance to fight it due to having a massive stroke as well. This necklace is something for me to know she is always with me. She will be with me when I get married and have kids and all the milestones few and far. I can’t describe how grateful I am for this!
I hate that I have two because it means I have lost two loves. These beautiful necklaces make me feel close to what I have lost though, and bring me comfort. I have a black one and a white one now. Clearly I think enough of them to have purchased multiple. They take great care.
Love the piece of my husband I can have with me always! <3
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.
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.
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.
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!
I absolutely love the way my pendant came out. I also really appreciate the time Matt took with me in selecting the perfect color and size. I have already recommended him to others. I have not taken it off accept to shower. And best part, i am constantly complemented on it.
My experience was awesome! I didn’t send my sample in right away and in the meantime, I lost my return kit. I emailed asking how I should proceed and Matthew responded promptly and with detailed instructions. Since this was a gift, he even offered to update the email on file to mine so I received the notifications. I would definitely recommend Grateful Glass. Thank you, I love my necklace!
July the 2nd was a day of sadness that was devastating for me, The lose of my Uncle changed life as I knew it. Matt created an item for me that I wear around my neck allowing me to carry my memory’s with me everyday. Thank you.
I am so happy with experience with Grateful Glass. Not only is my pendant beautiful, but also the whole experience was pleasant. The collection kit was so tasteful and well done, and Matt so personable and communicative, that I felt completely secure sending him some ashes of my beloved Jessie.
Thank you, 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.
Grateful Glass has this process down to perfection. The packaging and collection materials were respectful. Appropriate shipping instructions were provided (this is actually a big deal), The customer service was incredibly thoughtful. The final product was gorgeous. It was exactly what I was hoping it would be. I investigated multiple cremation jewelry companies and I’m so glad I chose Grateful Glass.
Words can't describe how lucky my family was to find Matt and Grateful Glass. His Memory Stone and Pendants helped us process the loss of our family dog Dutch. The craftsmanship and quality in these mementos are really sturdy and well made, I can tell it'll look the same as i first received it and when i look at it 10 years from now. It really is comforting to have these keepsakes with us to take wherever we go and to see the ashes clearly in the glass. The shipping process of the ashes was very solid and secure could not have gone any better. Matt answered any questions and uncertainties I had quickly and professionally and would absolutely recommend Grateful Glass to any friends or family. Matt truly is one of the best. Thank you Matt & Grateful Glass.
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.
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!!!
My pendant, and everything involved with the order, purchase and delivery, was amazing. Matt communicated with me every step of the way, and kept in touch regarding each little detail. My necklace was finished and shipped incredibly fast, and it is absolutely stunning. I knew my daddy's remains were treated with dignity and respect, and I couldn't ask for a better tribute to him. Thanks to Matt and Grateful Glass, I get the opportunity to have my beloved father close to my own heart in a beautiful heart pendant every, single day. Knowing he is near truly helps with the pain of having lost him, and I find my necklace is as much a comfort to me as it is a gorgeous piece of jewelry. I am so very thankful for this tribute to my daddy, and the way it was handled with such care and respect. Thank you to Matt, and everyone involved in my beautiful creation.
In case anyone wants to know I got the dime size pendant. I used to work at Chewy.com and dealing with customers and their pets passing away was always hard. I found this website by chance and always told customers about it when they lost their little furr baby. Unfortunately I lost my healthy cat of 9 years, I mean the healthiest little guy so suddenly. He was attached to my hip and loved me so much. I even have a tattoo of him but I felt like it wasn’t enough. Then I remembered Grateful Glass and how beautiful and different it was. The process was so easy and Matt is one of the most trustworthy person to handle your loved one. I wouldn’t want anyone else. I love my pendant so much not only because it’s my furr baby but also because no one knows what it really is and everyone compliments it and I always feel good about it. If you’re thinking about getting a pendant or something, please do NOT hesitate. Matt takes great pride in his work and will walk you through every step of the way. Thank you Matt! (P.S. the girl with the chain)
My Grateful Glass Perpetual Pendant is beyond beautiful! I can't express what it means to me to have the spirit of my beloved boxer, Cash, with me at all times. Matt is a true professional, great artisan, and a truly compassionate person. I feel blessed to have found Matt and Grateful Glass. Thank you Matt, from the bottom of my heart, for creating such an amazing memorial pendant that has brought me comfort from the moment I laid eyes on it! (((HUGS))).
I ordered five pendants with my daughter’s remains. She was just a baby, and I was concerned about the amount requested to send for each pendant. I contacted Matt, and he was beyond helpful and considerate in helping me choose the right colors for the pendants, and working with a small amount of ashes. Each pendant turned out beautifully, with leftover remains to spare. I truly appreciate all of the time and detail they put into my order.
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!
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.
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!
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.
