Paragade by tishaia Paragade by tishaia
As requested, after the Paragon and Renegade - the Paragade pendant ^^.

When I started to play in Mass Effect I had a huge problem with choosing: Paragon or Renegade? Those two not equal good or bad. Some of the choices are far more complicated than that. In the end I played through both paths and still I can't say which is better, or for the lack of the right word - more suitable for me.

Being a Paragon means to me helping people. Sometimes you have to go with the flow, be flexible and change your decisions based on the circumstances. Being a Renegade means to me pursuing your end goal even if you have to make some sacrifices along the way. It means staing focused and concentrated on what have to be done, no distractions.

I hope the way I adorned this pendant give a vibe of the things I said.

Pendant is made of precolored metallic polymer clay and 8 Swarovski zirconias. It's 60 mm in diameter and up to 8 mm thick. The darker layer is triple painted with gloss varnish, the whole pendant is painted with matt varnish. It's not very visible on this photo, but the hollowed sign is really shiny what make it stand out even more on the matt background.
I added the gray cotton waxed cord with chinese sneak knot to add a little more military vibe.

Pendant is handmade without use of any molds or stamps and are one of a kind.

All Mass Effect'y things belong to Bioware :).

I saw your renegade pendant on Etsy, immediately wished for a Paragade one...then here's me searching for a paragade symbol and boom! Pendant!

I would love something like this, maybe with the knotwork silver on top of a slighter darker shade...

I'll drop you a line on Etsy, if that's ok - I saw the Kaidan Pendant (and promptly burst into the tears of the empty-walleted) and it made me even more sure that I need to talk to you about a proper ME themed pendant piece. Nothing else out there is calling to me the way your work has been.
