I have seen some people have the glass suspended in perspex as a wall hanging. Sounds tacky, but it actually looked phenomenal.

Yes, we were actually the ones who got this Etsy seller started on making mezuzot out of crushed glass from the wedding.  She had been doing fused glass mezuzot, and we asked her whether she could do one from the shards of our wedding glass.  The picture is of the one she did for us.

We had the glass made into a mezuzah and into a lucite frame for our invitation.

That tree of life is pretty cool.  I like the mezzuzahs as well though.  I think I am going to surprise my sister with something like this for her wedding since I am her Maid/Matron of Honor.  I had never heard of people doing something like this and I think it’s a lovely idea and a great way to create a keepsake that can be passed down through the generations.

they sell lots of things at judaica stores now a days where they provide little tubes to put the crushed glass.

i.e. picture frames, photo albums, mezzuzah, candelsticks, kiddish cups.

Bascially anything you can think of that is see through and can be adorned to an item you can put the glass in. its pretty cool.

 I love the mezzuzah idea!

I bought a beautiful marble mezuzzah when I was in Israel 4 years ago and it has a clear glass tube for the broken glass to go in.  I think it’s very sentimental & I’m sure you’ll find soemthing special to put it in.

Here’s a company that encases the broken glass in perspex:

The animation on the front page makes it look really nice.

What if you’re using a lightbulb instead of a glass?

Kay76310:  I know it may be too late for you, but I make pottery and melt the glass from a Jewish ceremony or from a wine bottle enjoyed at the reception into spoon rests, ring dishes, or his & hers mugs! Looks like my rates are much more economical than many other options! >> https://squareup.com/market/stonewarebysarah
