Memorial Testimonials

Thank you so much for the unique service that you provide. All of the handmade (Memorial) glass art items are absolutely beautiful. Truly a gift of craftsmanship. Thank you. It will give me great joy to give these away to family members as gifts…a lovely reminder of my husband, Bob.


The Memorial paperweight arrived today, 1 week before Christmas! I love it and it’s beautiful and from my home state!

It is made in my Mom Eve’s honor. She was my best friend. The rest of her ashes minus a small jar, are in The Life Forest in Hillsborough, NH.

Thank you so much! Love K.

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart!!  I am absolutely in love with my memorial pendant, it’s beautiful!!
I’ll be recommending you to others as well!
Have a wonderful holiday season,

I am so in love with my heart memorial it is absolutely stunning. So glad I sent you a picture of Trixie because the creamy coffee color is perfect.
The best though is I turn the light on early so when I go up to bed there’s a special light on to remind me that Trixie will always be with me close to my heart.
Many thanks and much gratitude,❣️

I had seven memorial sun catchers made for my family with my grandmothers ashes. The entire experience was perfect. If you drop the ashes off like I did, they take the time and bring you in to show you where they make the memorials so there is always reassurance that your loved one is in good hands. The sun catchers are beautifully made, we are so happy with them!

Thank you so much Terrapin Glassblowing Studio for creating one of your beautiful glass memorials for our precious boy, Felix. It matches the colors from his collar perfectly – we love it so much ❤️

Dear Terrapin,
I just received my teardrop with Windsor and Sadie’s ashes, and it is just so beautiful. Please let your team know how much it means to me. I will be wearing it next to my heart as I’ve worn the blue one for the last 4+ years. What you do is a tremendous help to those who are grieving.
With deep appreciation,
I can’t begin to express the emotions that ran through me when I opened each and every purple pouch. Having Dad close to me every day is going to be so healing.
These pieces are not only works of art, but unique and incredibly special. They are beautiful!!
From the bottom of my heart, thank you to you, your daughter, and all involved for creating something for me and my Mom, that no amount of words could give us. I have something to hold and I can feel my Dad’s presence.
If you were here, I would hug you.
I will be ordering more. ❤️

We are so thrilled with how it turned out! We are so grateful to have such a beautiful tribute to our kitty. Thank you again. It means so much to us.

I simply can’t say thank you enough for the memorial glass suncatchers and beads. What a perfect and beautiful way to honor my Dad for me, my Mom and the rest of our family! A keepsake forever! Your artists are beyond talented and the quality is breathtaking. Thank you so much!

It is perfect!!  Could not be more pleased.  Please give the person who made it a huge hug for me.

It has been a month since we parted physically at least. I am so blessed that you are still right next to me in spirit. Last night I was able to pick up a glass pendant and soothing stone made with Rex’s ashes thanks to the very kind folks at Terrapin Glass in Jaffrey, NH. They are both beautiful. He will always be close to my heart.

Happy beyond words with the outcome! Love what you guys do @ Terrapin Glassblowing Studio! Thank you!! 🥰

The lighted base is an amazing addition!

Madeline was my Grandmother & my best friend. She had fire & sunshine in her soul. She loved the beach & roses & her favorite color was red.

The Fire pendant came out soooooo perfect! Thank you so so much!

Highly recommend. I brought in ashes from four of our cats and two dogs that we have had for years. We want to scatter them but it has been hard to let them go. I found Terrapin and they have some beautiful glass memorials for pet cremains. I made an appointment and brought the ashes with me. They spent time with me reviewing all the selections and color combinations. She made some great suggestions. It took a few weeks. I’m so pleased with the results! ❤️

I attended a class at Terrapin to celebrate my sisters 40th birthday. Little did I know, just over 3 1/2 years later I would be using their amazing skills to make beautiful art out of her ashes after she lost her battle to cancer. My sister had asked to have her ashes put in glass pieces for all of her family. I was very nervous to find a glassblower and send her ashes off. After reading how seriously and respectfully Terrapin treat this process and how the whole process works, it put my mind at ease. My order arrived in about three weeks and I was speechless. The pieces were stunning, safely and beautifully packaged, and I couldn’t have been happier. I am so thankful that these amazing artist provide this service.

I said goodbye to my best friend on March 25.
I contacted Terrapin Glassblowing Studio to have a pendant made with some of his ashes.
We used to wander in the woods for hours while I foraged for mushrooms and he sniffed for critters.
Today I received the most beautiful pendant with a mushroom and Skeeter’s ashes.
They absolutely nailed it!

This 14mm high dome bead by @terrapinglass contains my senior pittie Bernie’s ashes. I designed a cuff bracelet that also featured a cropped-ear silhouette with a heart nose – just like Bernie had❤️


Focused on customer satisfaction. Great custom glass.

Rest easy working with this group.

All the best, JB

I love the memorial suncatcher.  My cousin will too.

I appreciate the thoughtful way you help during the process of healing from such a loss.

Just picked Brady Pup up a little bit ago and I have to tell you, it’s stunning!!!

Brady LOVED the ocean and sitting in the sunshine~ this color combo was spot on!!

We found him a “perfect spot”, right next to my dad’s memorial suncatcher, and managed to catch the last of today’s daylight….. made our hearts happy!
 Thank you for yet another amazing memorial!!!

Amy K and Fam 

Thank you so much.  I got the pendant yesterday and it is beautiful.  I thank you.
I will recommend you to everyone I know. I also e-mailed the funeral home that took care of my husband’s
Thank you

The Memorial pieces came out lovely! I love my hummingbird! Beautiful artistry!


Good Morning,

I want to thank you for the message. It is so reassuring that my mother’s ashes are in good hands. The last set of memorial shamrocks were so impressive that other family members asked for one. I so appreciate your responsiveness as well. You make the process so easy.
Thank you,

Terrapin did an amazing job creating the Night Sky Paperweight using my beloved husband’s ashes. My daughter chose the Snowflakes Paperweight, along with a charm bead to keep her dad close by.
We can’t thank Terrapin enough for their beautiful artwork, and assistance in making sure we received exactly what we asked for.

I can’t express enough how beautiful and magical the memorial pieces are!  They arrived yesterday….which was SO amazing as it was my birthday.  Thank you  so much for the care, love and energy and time that was given making these treasures.  They are stunning!
Kelly Chace

The package arrived just a few moments ago. I am so impressed with the unbelievable craftsmanship of the glass pieces you made with our pups ashes. I could not have even imagined how gorgeous they would turn out. Your skill is exceptional and your customer appreciation and service is stellar. Thank you for a wonderful job.

We recently had to say goodbye to our sweet 15 year old dog Lincoln. He joins our lab Jenny who passed years ago.When we lost Lincoln my husband said now Jenny can watch out for him. We have combined both Lincoln and Jenny’s ashes so they can share the sunshine with us. It warms our heart to see the sunlight coming through this beautiful memorial. Lincoln loved to lay in the sun.  These losses have left a big hole in our hearts which is now filled with sunshine.

My wife, Linda, passed away in April of 2018, and for mother’s day that year, most of the family went to your studio to create memorials for her. It made Mother’s Day a little more tolerable since she had passed so soon before. Later in the year, when I went to a grief support group, I showed the group your beautiful work, and people were amazed! So many people there wanted to purchase them for their loved ones. A lady in the group couldn’t drive the distance due to her disabilities, so I offer a ride as I was coming to pick up some additional items. Somehow your glass works and a trip to Cathedral of the Pines formed a bond for us, and we are now engaged. You will always have a special place in our hearts and thank you for your compassion and craftsmanship.

Don Tishler

The two stones made with brother’s ashes are truly more beautiful than I could have imagined! The professionalism of the glass blower and all the other staff was amazing. They helped me every step of the way. I couldn’t be happier with my pieces. Thank you for the forever memory.

Anne Marie…

I’ve been trying to find the right words since I received my memorial piece yesterday. Thank you so much!!! 1) The turn-around time was insanely fast! And 2) He’s perfect!! Somehow, either Rocky was leading your hand or something, but he’s extra stretchy long… which Rocky was. (He would reach up my leg while standing on his hind legs…. and be able to reach up to my front jeans pockets! I’m 5’8″.)
But thank you again…

This piece was made with ashes from the volcanic eruption at Mount St. Helens, Washington in 1980.

Its so perfect that I almost started crying. The swirl inside has some of Bellas ashes in it, what a gorgeous memorial!

#smallbusinessshoutout to @glassmemorials by @terrapinglass for this pendant that is so special to me…it has both my grandmother’s and grandfather’s ashes blown into it. Sneak peek…I’ll be wearing this as my “something old” on our wedding day!

Today’s #tributetuesday photo is one of Granpa Brooke – sort of. I had some of his ashes made into a pendant by Terrapin Glassblowing Studio @terrapinglass in New Hampshire. They did an amazing job. I’m glad that he can be close to my heart at all times now. Missing you, Brookies.


Received my memorial paperweight from Terrapin Glassblowing Studio in Jaffrey, NH today. My Brother, Sister and I each had a colorful paperweight made using two colors of our choosing and some of our Mom’s ashes sprinkled in. A unique and artistic way to keep a piece of Mom around for each of us.

Peter Johnson

‘I just wanted to share this photo with you! You made this pendant (which I repurposed into a bracelet) for me back in June which I wore to my wedding in September. It has both of my grandparents ashes in it and it meant the world to me to have them “with” me on my special day. Thank you for what you do. It’s very special!’

Absolutely adore the 2 pendants created from my beloved Border Collie’s ashes. They handled the transaction with grace and respect and the resulting pendants are gorgeous. My Pup-Pup rides hanging from my rear view mirror and I touch the glass everyday to let him know he will always be with me. ♥️????

Jeannie J.

I couldn’t be happier with the paperweights I had done with my Grandmother’s ashes. I went in on a very busy Saturday and was treated like I was the only person in the store at the time. The staff at Terrapin are absolutely wonderful, friendly and professional all at once. I’m so glad to have a business that I was able to completely trust with my Gram.
