Amazing quality and craftsmanship.

This is beautiful and exactly what we were looking for as a keepsake for my mother-n-law for my father-n-law’s ashes. It is just perfect! Thank you!!

To anyone else who may be searching for that something special to do with a loved one’s cremation...

I have rarely been separated from my Grateful Glass keepsake necklace since I received it. My heart was completely shattered when I found out that my loving cat, Callie, of 11 years, was not going to recover when she developed an abrupt and severe illness. After she had gone through numerous evaluations, procedures, and medications that did not improve her condition, my last hope was to have her undergo exploratory surgery to get more answers. Unfortunately the answers I received from the veterinarian were grim, and I was faced with the reality of having to make the most difficult decision I would ever have to make about her care. My heart wanted to ask the veterinarian to wake her up from surgery and let me take her home with me where she belonged, but the reasonable side of me (I am in the medical field), knew that this road would be the selfish one, now equipped with the new information just provided to me. I couldn’t let her suffer, and I couldn’t watch her suffer any longer. And just like that, she was gone from my world forever.

In the few days following that dark day, I began searching the internet for a way to memorialize my companion, who was so loyal to me all those years. I knew I wanted to keep a part of her with me always. When I began looking at jewelry, most of what i found in my searching was either tacky or morbid in appearance. But the moment I happened upon Grateful Glass, I knew immediately I had found my forever keepsake. After reading other reviews and testimonials, I was assured that my loved one’s ashes would be treated with dignity and respect through the entire process of having my keepsake made. I was drawn to the story about how Matthew Olian first began making these special pieces, providing a ray of hope to those who have lost pets or loved ones. The ordering process was smooth and easy. I also received my finished product even sooner than it was promised, and it was even more beautiful in person. Thank you for what you do, Gratefu...

Nicest cremation jewelry on the market

I want to express my great appreciation for Matt and his business. He really makes a difficult time feel more at peace with his great creations. I have dealt with many businesses over the years and this was one of the best experiences that I ever had. His order process and shipping is world class as well as his follow ups and availability for answering questions. I highly recommend his services and will tell everyone I know about this awesome product line he offers to help ease the pain of a loss of a loved one.

Wonderful experience and beautiful memorial glass pendant!

I'm so happy with the pendant Matt made for me. It's even more gorgeous in person. I chose the petite pendant in royal orange.

Fantastic product & service!

Scruffy was more than just a cat. He was my constant during the most major changes in my life. He was with me for 10 years. He comforted me through the stress of college, the excitement of marriage and children, the worry and anxiety of a military deployment, and everything in between. When he passed away, I couldn’t bear to think what my life would be like without him. Grateful Glass was my answer. I received my amber purple cuff bracelet two weeks ago, and I finally feel closure. I’m comforted knowing Scruffy is always with me, again, just as he had been. Thank you so much, to Matt especially, for promptly answering all my questions when I was worried about the process. Picking a company to handle such sensitive and emotionally delicate work was stressful, but once I looked into Grateful Glass, I was so impressed with their entire process. I can’t say enough positive things about them. Thank you again for reuniting me with my boy.

Totally in love with my keepsake pendant!

Thank you very much, you were wonderful to work with.

Absolutely fantastic product and artist.

Matthew helped me get the product in a pinch and it was beautifully crafted. It was done as a gift - and was greatly appreciated. Customer service is second-to-none. If you are considering doing this - you should!! Thank you!!

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.

I recommend Grateful Glass without hesitation- you won't be disappointed!

I can't say enough about the superior service I received from Matt and Grateful Glass. Matt was prompt in replying to my emails and answered all my questions. The collection kit was packaged respectfully in an elegant box and arrived quickly after I submitted my order. I received the finished pendants within two weeks of returning the collection kit. They are beautiful beyond words. Now we can keep our beloved Pug Vegas close to us always. Matt is a talented jewelry artist who obviously takes pride in his work and his customer service. I recommend Grateful Glass without hesitation. You won't be disappointed!

My entire experience with Matt Olian and Grateful Glass has been simply wonderful.

Our beloved pug Vegas passed away on January 21st and I discovered Grateful Glass when searching for a way to have a piece of memorial jewelry made. I ordered a Forever Pendant for me, and a Perpetual Pendant for my daughter, both in Imperial Onyx to match Vegas' coloring. Matt was quick to respond to my emails and promptly sent me the collection kit. Even the kit and the way it was packaged was of superior quality. I received the finished pieces only two weeks after shipping the kit back with the ashes. They are so beautiful and the quality is as good as or even better than any designer jewelry from a high-end retailer. It was packaged in a beautiful keepsake box with a polishing cloth and Certificate of Authenticity too. Thank you so much Matt. I hope you know how much comfort your beautiful work has brought to us. You are very talented indeed. Vegas can always be with us now.

Thank you for your artistry and care.

In todays world it has become difficult to find good client relations and empathy. Grateful Glass exceeded all my expectations. The craftsmanship of the pieces are exceptional! Not to mention the personal care! I have and will continue to recommend Grateful Glass to all. Thank you for your artistry and care.

I can't begin to express how much this memorial pendant means to me.

It's been 18 years since my father passed away and 21 years since my big brother passed away. I've looked for years to find the perfect way to show that they are always with me. Matt & Grateful Glass gave me that! My necklace is close to my heart where they both are every day. It's a beautiful piece - a heart, in my favorite color, blue. I can't express how much this means to me and how wonderful Matt was throughout the ordering process. I have already recommended Grateful Glass to a dear friend. Thank you Matt for creating the perfect symbol of my love for 2 of the most wonderful men in my life.

Amazing product with top notch customer service!

The pendant is absolutely beautiful. As tough as it was to loose our beloved Pete, this keepsake will provide me with a daily reminder of how much I truly love and miss him. Grateful Glass made the entire process very professional and with great respect.

The Memory Stone is absolutely beautiful. As tough as it was to loose our beloved Pete, this keepsake will provide me with a daily reminder of how much I truly love and miss him. Grateful Glass made the entire process very professional and with great respect.

Thank you for a wonderful experience during such difficult times.

My daughter was very close to her grandpa who was an artist. He instilled in her a love of art and she went on to become an Art Therapist, which she continually credits her Grandpa for. When he passed two years ago, we wanted to give her something she would be able to treasure and we decided that a piece of art from Grateful Glass was the perfect choice and had a bracelet made for her. She absolutely loved it and cherishes it. This past year she lost her Grandma and we had a necklace made for her also. We cannot speak highly enough about the entire process and also about the quality of the finished pieces. Thank you for a wonderful experience during difficult times.

Thank you Grateful Glass!

What a roller coaster! After I received my amber pendant, I was so upset because the color was not anything like the website's picture, in a room it appeared almost black and white. I stoutly expressed my disappointment, and even though the policy says no refunds, Mr. Olian was willing to go way above and beyond to make me happy. But this morning I looked at it again (a sunnier day than yesterday) and saw incredible colors of pink, purple, blue, and beautiful silver sparkles. It was so beautiful I cried. This truly is a work of stunning art, crafted by an artist who stands behind his work with honest integrity. I can only recommend that you take a really close look in the brightest sun light if you are not initially happy with your product. I'm going to wear mine every day, and I cannot thank Mr. Olian enough for all he did!

I cannot recommend highly enough!

I found the artist on-line while searching for a special way to memorialize my cat Misty. The artist worked with me to create a custom gray colored glass pendant to match her fur. The ordering process is easy to follow and the artist, accessible by phone and e-mail, is professional and compassionate. The craftsmanship is stunning and I now have a treasured memento of my beloved Misty to carry close to my heart.

Grateful Glass is the absolute best for cremation jewelry!

This is my second Grateful Glass pendent. I get asked about it everywhere I go. Love it!

I absolutely love this company/vendor.

Matt is one of the most honest, hardworking people I've ever known. I'm so happy to have discovered such a wonderful artisan, I'm a customer for life.

I wholeheartedly recommend Grateful Glass to anyone looking for cremation jewelry.

I love my Grateful Glass bracelet.  I have gotten many compliments on it.  I wouldn't think of attending anything of importance without him on my wrist.  Thank you Grateful Glass for making it all possible and so easy to do.

Fantastic product with caring and personal customer service

Matt’s communication and attention to detail throughout the process was outstanding. I’m very pleased with the quality and artistry of the memorial necklace he created.

Thanks so much for your care, attention, and talent.

Hi Matt! I received the 'Perpetual Pendant' that GG created with the cremation ashes of my beloved Greyhound, Apollo, this afternoon. It is absolutely stunning- everything I hoped it would be, and well worth the price. It has been just shy of a year since Apollo crossed the rainbow bridge, and I searched high and low for a fitting tribute to do his memory proper justice. Now he can be with me all the time :) GG's product is seamless- a beautiful memento, clearly crafted with love for the subject and art form.

I highly recommend working with Matt & Grateful Glass

I am so glad that I chose to have my pendant with my dear sister's ashes made by Matt. The collection and return of the ashes was professional and respectful. I have had my pendant for about 2 years and wear it daily. So, I was devastated when I felt my chain slip from my neck following my bike commute to work and the pendant gone. Later, I found my pendant outside the entrance to work, but it had been dragged across the cement beneath the door as I had entered the building. Matt reviewed pictures of the scratch and offered me a couple ways he could attempt to fix the scratch in my pendant. On further reflection I decided to keep the pendant with its scratch (barely noticeable to the eye), but I am so impressed with Matt's devotion to his customers and his craft. I highly recommend working with Matt. When handing over the remains of a loved one you need to know that the artist understands this kind of responsibility.

Love love love my necklace.

I love having my son close to my heart everyday in a beautiful piece of artwork. Matt was amazing to work with. He answered my many questions and got me the necklace in plenty of time to be able to wear it on the 2nd anniversary of my sweet boy's passing on September 14th.
