I've started making tile framed mirrors. I have two

Does anyone have an elegant idea for a secure way of
hanging these very heavy pieces on the wall. I'm
looking for something that has a professional look and
won't pull the wall down.

Right now, I'm mounting the tiles and mirror onto 5/8
plywood. I could add molding to "frame" the tiles and
cover the edge of the wood but I prefer the look of
just the tiles so I am painting the edge of the wood
the same color of the tiles. Does anyone have a
better solution? Also, has anyone tried this with 1/4
inch plywood on a big mirror (20 inchs by 24 inchs).

Thanks for any advise!
