Kitchen Clutter Control! Help me find shelves for my counter.

I want to mount narrow shelves at the back of my kitchen counters, along the top of the backsplash. I have not been able to find anything suitable to match the dark decor.
I have black laminate counters with dark cherry-finish wood cabinets. All the hardware in our house is oil-rubbed bronze. See PHOTOS.

Ikea makes nice inexpensive shelves, but nothing to match my color scheme.
These glass shelves might work
. Do they look too much like bathroom shelves? Is it safe to have tempered glass shelves at the kitchen counter?
I have thought about getting a contractor to make custom shelves, but that seems way too expensive.
Measurements: The wood backsplash is 4.25 high and 7/8" deep.
- Need shelves wide enough to store 5" canisters and jars.
- Easy to clean
- Coordinated with my kitchen decor. Any metal needs to be bronze. (No silver, no shiny brass)
- Corner shelves could be freestanding, to hold larger items.
- Hoping to keep cost down. We intend to remodel kitchen in a couple years.
