This is a little preview of a great store we'll be posting about next week, but we couldn't wait to show you this clever idea. It's a display bowl filled with shattered safety glass — the detritus of a break-in to the store owner's car.

The glass has a fabulous luminous quality, and we could see it as a bed for a jewelry display at home. The safety glass is surprisingly ouch-less by design, and we had no problem picking up handfuls.

We say: what a way to make lemonade when you've got lemons!
