Olian, Matthew

With the utmost care and respect, accomplished glass cremation jewelry artist, Matthew Olian, encases and suspends a small amount of your loved ones’ cremated remains within layers of optically pure glass. The glass-and-ash mixture is manipulated over a small flame, allowing for rich detail and color. What makes this such an elegant memorial keepsake, is that the wearer clearly knows its their loved one’s ashes within the keepsake, but to the naked eye it looks like the cosmos.  Not surprisingly, black and cobalt blue are among our most popular colors.

Available as glass pendants, rings, bracelets, key chains and paperweights, Grateful Glass also creates custom shades and shapes upon request. If desired, ashes can be directly handled through your local funeral home.

Grateful Glass pendant by Matthew Olian

I searched the web looking for memorial jewelry. I came across Grateful Glass and was impressed with Matt’s jewelry creations. The process was easy and the communication was great. The pendant is amazing. It is so beautiful, even better than I imagined it would be. It brings me so much comfort and I wear it all the time. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to honor my precious daughter. Thank you Matt!!
