Memorial Testimonials

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!

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.

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.

‘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. ♥️????

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.
