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.

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.

Matt is a wonderful artist to make this cherished keepsake.

I found Grateful Glass after reading a news report. I decided to purchased an orb. The way you send the ashes is so reassuring, beautifully done and shows a lot of caring. My beautiful husband died in September 2011. I wanted some way to keep a little of his ashes, the orb is the unique way I will have him forever. I am going to purchase another one for my sister who also lost her husband.

Beautiful artwork, classy packaging, and attentive communication! A+

My Grateful Glass is a very special memento of my beloved cat, Walter. As I look into the globe his ashes remind me that he is always close to me and a constant part of my life. When people see it, I get the opportunity to tell them about him, which brings me happiness to continually share his story with others. The work was exquisite, timely, and a true reflection of his beloved place in my heart.

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.
