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.

Absolutely Perfect.

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.

Very pleased

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!

Perfection

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.

Grateful

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.
