detail 7 open gate

Image #007b This image duplicates the one above…I just wanted to show you that the Gate opens…when my sister suggested a gate she also suggested that it could open, I told her that an opening gate was getting to perfinicky and that I could embroider a gate….But as it happens by the time I got to wanting the gate my son, Sam had started doing a silver smithing class and was leaning to solder silver joins…I bent the wire frame to fit the space and he took it to class to solder the frame, the curly bits on the top and the latch …he also got some finer gauge wire for me to weave the mesh, the mesh is very wonky as I was working out how to do it as I went, when I got it finished the perfectionist in me wanted to cut it off and do it again because now I know how to do it I could do a much neater job, but then looking at it the crooked mesh just made it look like a battered old garden gate which is just perfect for my charming garden and I love it just as it is…a couple of extra pieces of wire make the hinges and we have a haulmarked silver, opening garden gate…
