I'll be your weapon, I'll be your armor by tishaia I'll be your weapon, I'll be your armor by tishaia
You have seen it coming, haven't you? :>

This piece of armor is really something iconic for Fenris, and along with the quote "I am yours" creates an aura of devotion - again something characteristic for the elf. Or maybe I was the only one that felt that way at the end of the story? When Fenris finally decides to be with the Champion, he starts to be really comitted to their relationship. The way he lashes out at everyone who DARES to flirt with Hawke always makes me smirk :>. And the final kiss...? Ahem, right, back to the topic. ;P

But that all comes later.
Imagine Fenris sitting in the hall of Hawke's mansion. His hatred and anger are all the outside world can see. It covers him like a thick armor. But when he sits there, thinking, he starts to realize why he is here, why he feel the need - again - to explain himself to the Champion. In this one, quiet moment he finally understands, and it fills him with fear, and doubt, but there is also this warm overflowing emotion, the one he cannot name yet. And in the dim light and silence of the empty corridor, his hidden feelings starts to bloom. Like the shy, early spring roses, not sure they will be given enough sunlight to sustain them.

I wanted this piece to be more 3-dimensional. The pendant is 55x55 mm and up to 8 mm thick. The armor is simple and solid but adorned with huge amount of details. The central part is the little heart and the patterns creating a impression of warmth emerging from the center of the cold armor. The fresh roses are shyly peaking from behind of the gorget.
The matching earrings are 30x35 mm.
All is made by me out of polymer clay. The metal parts are silver-coated.

The set is handmade and one of a kind! :)

Grab it on Etsy! :D [link]

you are very welcome and you deserve such praise! I am simply amazed by the work you have done! I've dabbled a bit in sculpting with clay but of course I never spent so much time with it... oh i wish i could make something like this because I would wear it non-stop XD keep up the good work, you definitely have talent! I love every piece I've seen in your gallery ;w;

Thank you, thank you! :D Your comment made my day ^^'. I agree that sculpting in clay requires loads of patience but maybe try to listen to the music or some audiobooks while working on it. I do it often and it really helps. Clay is great because you can make so many different things with it :D. I keep my fingers crossed for your next try ;D.
*hugs*

Question: How come when I go on the site, there's no button or anything to get it? I pretty much fell in love with Fenris the minute I met him, so I want this really really badly, but I'm not seeing a way to actually purchase it. Sorry if it's really obvious and you now think I'm an idiot, but seriously.

Hey!
Sorry, but this piece is already sold. If you like my ideas for Dragon Age jewelry keep in touch, because I will be doing more in the future. But I have to get on with the commissions first. You can also commission me if you like, and if you have some ideas of what do you want me to make :).

Haha thanks :D. Aye, I am working on two sets, one Republic themed and one for the Empire :>. I am playing as a Sith, and I am not sure why, but it was so much easier for me to make the Republic set, thay one is nearly done :D. I'm still hovering over the Empire one, not sure how to finish it ;P. I wanted to put them on DA in the one daviation, as they are in a way completing each other, so it might be a while :/.

Now that I think about it, I'dve thought it would be the other way around... Empire is all rigidity and cold metal, but I can't think of what the Republic represents...
I'm sure they're both going to be amazing, regardless!

i continue to bow to your skill. This is beautiful... absolutely beautiful. It is everything that I love about him.... i absolutely melted when he says "I am yours" ... specially since ist so reminiscent of Zevran. Both elves were so hardened and hiding... and when you break through their walls.... they're so emotionally beautiful.

yes. i love this peice. :D

Wow, thank you so much! I usually prefer big and manly men, you know, the "beauty and the beast" beastly types, but I'm helpless when it comes to those two. I like Star Wars universe (playing SW:toR a little lately) but I just can't wait for mor elfness in DA3 :D.
