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.

Perfect

I purchased the 1” pendant for my daughter, made from my father’s (her Papa’s) ashes. Matt made the entire experience, from our first email to delivery, highly personal. He treated me like his own family member. This kind of personal service is way above the norm! My mother has been on the fence about having a piece of jewelry made from my father’s ashes, but after seeing my daughters, she is also going to have one made. I cannot thank you enough Matt!

Always with me

My Eternal Love Pendant containing bits of our beautiful Kelpie, Abby, arrived last week. Black like her coat with her ashes representing the white tuft on her chest, as soon as I put it on I had a sense of peace I haven't experienced since we lost her. Thank you, Matt, for your care and concern in crafting this most precious memorial for me. When I go for a walk, my Abby can always be with me.

More than I expected

The charm is as advertised, only more beautiful than I expected. I cried when I saw Reagan’s ashes encased in stunning green glass for my daughter Jade. They were best friends. Matt’s customer service is beyond anything you get in today’s fast paced world, where everyone is a number or transaction. We had a glitch where I wasn’t available to take delivery. Matt followed up with me, contacted the post office, and gave me the steps to ensure I received my package. Touched beyond belief! This wasn’t even for me. Thank you Matt!

A PLEASANT EXPERIENCE

MATT,
FROM THE BEGINNING, YOU WERE PROMPT TO RESPOND, PROFESSIONAL AND ATTENTIVE. ALL 3 PIECES (PENDANTS AND ORB) ARE BEAUTIFUL! THANK YOU.

Precious Keepsake

I am so thankful I found Matt online. I am pleased more than words can express. I wanted to keep some of my dear mother's ashes and gift them to family. I ordered 4 Perpetual Pendants. Matt worked with me to use a color that wasn't in his typical offering. He went above and beyond in every way. The pendants are gorgeous! The process of receiving and delivering the ashes was easy and meaningful with the collection kit Matt sent. Not only did Matt promptly respond to emails, he did so with kindness and respect. When my loved ones opened their Grateful Glass boxes and saw the pendants, the combination of tears and smiles told the story. Matt, thank you for helping us heal our broken hearts.
