Mettlemirrors – Honeycomb

The designs used share an identity and provide a sense of belonging with our African heritage. Reinterpreting these patterns has given each frame its own unique story and a special signature – making it a one-of-a-kind work of art.

Your unique frame will be handmade, in earthy natural colours with bright accents of metallic detail. Each of these hand crafted wooden frames is embellished with recycled metal, which has been hand coloured, textured and sanded, before being polished and cut into simple shapes. These symbols are then attached to the frame in bold repetitive geometric patterns. The mirrors are available in a standard range of designs and dimensions, however, they can also be customised to suit individual requirements.

  11. There are so many reasons to love South Africa, and to be proud of this beautiful country. We have the most beautiful weather, landscapes and wildlife .. in it’s natural, God-Made state, South Africa is an enchanting picture painted by the hand of God. And I am so proud to say, I come from here, in this diverse nation. It’s a place where we are the same and different at once, it’s where we embrace our differences and push past barriers to encourage breaking beyond all divides. We are a strong people who rally together in times of need and desperation, like any family, we have our ups and downs, but when it comes down to it, when South Africa is faced with a challenge, her people unite, they rally together behind each other and they fight hard for what truly matters. And that’s why I am proudly South African! #ProudlySouthAfrican

  22. Freedom in our lifetime came at a hefty price. As we look back on our struggles, we see a mirrored soul reflecting the love, heartache, joys and sorrows of our motherland. Now we truly feel the healing touch of a nation united and blessed. #ProudlySouthAfrican

  23. I returned to South Africa in 2009 for a visit after 10 years abroad, and decided to stay. The feeling of unity and excitement for the coming World Cup was palpable, as was the progress and development. I believe that was the best of South Africa, and that’s what makes me proud to be South African – that we’re capable of unity and able to achieve great things when we’re all working to the same goals and ideals.

  24. When you are born in South Africa…that stays in your blood, this will always be home, the mountains and sea my playground.

  26. South Africa is a beautiful country with so much diversity in landscapes & scenery, the people and wildlife. Yes there might be some problems but like anything in life if you look at the ‘glass half full’ there is so much charm amoungst the people and most people want a better SA for all.
