The little things

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.

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.

Piece of my heart

Thank you for capturing a piece of my heart in a beautiful necklace. My husband passed away in March and having this remembrance is calming to me.

Pendant for my father

In a time of complete sorrow I found your company through a friend of mine who raved about Grateful Glass. At the time I was looking at smaller pieces just so I would have something to carry around with me of my dad. After being pointed in your direction I knew this would be the keepsake to remember my father. Your attention to your work is amazing. My dad's ashed look like millions of stars in a little pendant which I know he would appreciate. Your customer service is above and beyond which is very refreshing especially in such a stressful time. I cannot thank you enough. I wear my necklace every day and know that in the times I need it I can reach up and feel the comfort of my pendant. Thank you again so very much

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!
