Pet Memorials

Saying good-bye is the hardest thing a devoted pet owner must endure. Keep your pet close to your heart with a custom designed glass keepsake. I can help you memorialize your pet with a plaque, pendant, tile, desktop accessory, sun catcher, etc.  For custom orders contact me at helen@glassbyhelen.com.   A small amount of cremains can be fused into the glass item of your choice.


Cremation keepsakes came to mind after experiencing my own pet losses.   I understand first hand that the loss of a pet is often one of life’s most difficult experiences.  Holding on to memories is an important part of healing and we understand what a sensitive and personal service we are offering, and we will create your memorial with the same love and respect as if it were our own pet.

Glass By Helen creates crematory glass art as an enduring remembrance of your cherished pets. Our designs are carefully executed, one-at-a-time, by hand, in our own studio, ensuring the highest possible quality and regard for the respectful handling of your pet's precious ashes. Our memorials are created using a kiln to melt the glass and cremains into the different shaped memorials.


When you place your order we will contact you with instructions on how to send us the cremains. We can easily make several memorials for you at one time if needed. We would like ½ teaspoon of cremains for one memorial, and if you want more than one, an additional ½ teaspoon for each is enough. If we don’t use the entire amount in the process, we will return what’s left with your completed memorial.  


If ordering the pet memorial plaque we will need a .jpg file emailed to helen@glassbyhelen.com.  When we receive your order we will confirm your order over the phone to ensure that we create the item you desire. The loss of your pet is very personal to you and we respect your feelings. We hope our creation can help you with your loss.  Lead time varies according to our production schedule and we will give you an approximate delivery time when we confirm your order. Because every memorial is hand-made, we like to take our time and get it just right. If you have any questions or need any additional information, please feel free to contact us at helen@glassbyhelen.com


When we finish your memorial, we will let you know when it’s being shipped so you’ll know when to expect it. We will pack it very carefully and ship it via USPS and will provide you with a Tracking Number.


Glass Pet Memorial Pyramids - Custom made with crushed glass in your color choice.  Each pyramid will vary slightly from the pictures since it is nearly impossible to duplicate when working with glass.  Your pets cremains can be fused into the top of the pyramid (area that looks white).  If you prefer to just have a pyramid made without the cremains we would be happy to do that too.  Additional details like your pets picture with the year of your pets birth/death can be added to your pyramid.  These images are melted into the glass making them permanent.

Purple Pet Memorial Pyramid - Your pets ashes fused into the top of the pyramid.
Red Pet Memorial Pyramid - Your pets ashes fused into the top of the pyramid.
Light Blue - Pet Memorial Pyramid - Your pets ashes fused into the top of the pyramid.
Pet Memorial Plaque - your pets picture fused permanently into a double layer of glass. White glass capped with clear.

Pet Memorial Plaque - We can memorialize your pet's picture permanently in glass.  Note the color of your picture will be in sepia tone like pictured.  The plaque is two layers of glass (white capped in clear) and measures approximately 5" x 7".  You have your choice of sayings that can be added to the plaque along with your pet's name and birth/death dates.  Additional options include a choice of either a heart or paw print with or without your pets ashes melted into the glass.  The heart or paw print will then be adhered to your plaque.
