We specialize in making glass memorial jewelry, pendants, marbles, pipes, ornaments with cremated remains. These pieces are very dear to our hearts, we truly care about helping people in anyway we can in going through the difficult process of grieving a loved one. We go out of our way to put personalized love and care into every step of the process. One of our experienced glass artists will take the cremated remains of your loved one and carefully incase them inside the glass. Then the artist will infuse them into a special commemorative piece of functional, wearable or sculptural glass artwork. The cremains appear as small white dots/air bubbles, similar to stars in space when inside the glass.



Please email us at dbkglass.shop@gmail.com to discuss the details of your special memorial piece. We will need to know what type of piece you would like made- pendant, pipe, marble etc as well as the size, shape and colors you would like used. Please see questions at the bottom of the page. After we agree upon the details of your memorial glass piece we will take payment, provide shipping instructions and you can then ship us the cremains. Be aware our current wait time may be 2-6 months.





The waiting period for a memorial piece of glass may be 2-6 months. We try to keep the average turn around to 8-10 weeks but we are running at longer wait times since covid. Please ask at time of order if you are concerned with time or need your piece by a certain date and we will do our best to accommodate. But please do be aware this is not a fast process and not something that should be rushed. We prefer to do things right not do them rushed. We take each order personally via email so we can give each order personalized attention, it can take many emails back and forth and a few days or more to get all of the details figured out if you do not know exactly what you would like. We like to be upfront and communicate openly and not rush these special projects.





 If you live in the Colorado Springs area and would like to place a Memorial order in store please email us to start a discussion. We closed out retail store 12/31/20 and are only open by appointment now. Generally we like to discuss the details of your order via email and set up an appointment for you to come in store to finalize and drop of the ashes. If you would like to do an in person paid consultation to discuss and place your order we can make arrangements.





We do not accept returns or give refunds on cremation memorial pieces.  Each memorial piece is lovingly crafted by hand to your specifications as a personal and lasting testament to your loved one. Due to the personal nature of the finished piece and the time and effort put into each one, we regret we are unable to accept returns or issue refunds for custom orders. If we do not make the piece to the agreed upon specifications please email us to discuss and we will take care of you.



Unfortunately we do not offer discounts or bulk deals on memorial pieces. We put a lot of time, love and care into making these special pieces by hand and do not cut corners or mass produce them. There is a high level of difficulty and procedure involved with handling and encasing ashes inside glass. We take extreme measures to ensure each piece is made with the proper ashes. Our artists only work with one order per day so the proper time and care are taken with the cremated remains and the creating of each memorial piece.




We will provide detailed instructions when you place your order. Please label the container with your name, the name of the deceased and the date. Put the container inside a zip lock bag or double bag if using a bag to ensure no leakage. ***IMPORTANT***When you ship you MUST ship UPSP using Priority Express with signature confirmation and notify the post office that you are shipping cremains so they give the package a special label and use more care during the shipping process. USPS is the only legal way to ship cremains.




We only need about a half teaspoon of ashes for a single piece of glass. A little goes a long way when encasing ashes in glass so we need very little for each piece. The ashes will be incased inside of the glass and magnified. We will return any unused ashes as well as any unused bits of glass that contain ashes leftover.




When you send the ashes (Or when you place your order) please include a photo of the person we are making the memorial of, their name and any special details or stories about them. It may sound funny but the artists like to think of the person and really put some love and positive engergy into the glass as they work with the remains when making a memorial piece. We believe glass holds energy and we want to put as much love and care into the memorial pieces as possible to make them truly special. This is optional, but does help the creative process. If you are a private person or it's just too hard to do please don't feel pressure to provide photos or info.



We are happy to memorialize any living thing from your loved ones to your family pets. If you would like multiple people or animal ashes used please provide information on them all.
