How can I hang shelves over this tile without drilling into it?

I would like to install 2-3 floating shelves in front of this tile backsplash, but I really don't want to drill through the tile. I thought perhaps I could side mount them somehow - I may be crazy but I actually don't mind drilling into the cabinets or the walls on either side. I just really am terrified of cracking that beautiful tile. Is this feasible? Any suggestions for commercial brackets that I can buy, or ideas on how to make them? I know they won't be able to hold a ton of weight and that's okay; all I want to put there is a fake plant or two, maybe some soap, little things like that.
