To be a Templar by tishaia To be a Templar by tishaia
Cullen is the best Templar can be. Period.
While playing DA: O, I was (a mage, of course, always a mage ;P) DISSAPOINTED! He was clearly infatuated! Why oh why he had to be so dutifull and RUN AWAY when I wanted to eee... get to know him a little better? I was angry but I did remember him. And after, when I rescued him from the abominations and he accidentally admitted his feelings, my heart broke :(.

In DA2 I was stunned when I saw him. This face, this warm voice, those eyes with dark circles... He looked tormented. I was a little iritated that he ignored my cousin (the Warden ;D) and was worried that after all that he endured he will gone mad. I was expecting the extremist.
He turned out to be compassionate and just and purehearted like noone I met ingame. I was really pleasantly suprised when he voted for not killing the mages and told Meredith what he thinks about his duties as a templar. But when he put himself before my mage Hawke and told the Knight Commander that to get to me she have to go trough him?! - I was in love! :D

Right, so here it is, my second big love from DA2 - The Knight-Captain. :)
I just had to finally make something dedicated to him.

The main motif on the pendant is the Templar crest - the flaming sword. I made it facing down, just like they have it on their armors.The falling star symbolises the Chantry. We know that there are some Templars that opposed the Chantry in the ongoing war with mages, and there are some that remained faithful. We don't know what side Cullen will chose. It's hard to see him as unfaithful or neglecting his duties, but on the other hand, he might not approve of killing off all the mages. After all, he swore not only to protect the world from mages, but also to protect mages themselfs.
So, the sword. Is it following the star, or is it piercing it? I leave it to your interpretation :).

The pendant is made of polymer clay, 80x38mm. The zirconias are Swarovsky. The metal hook is silver plated. This piece is handmade with loooove! ;D

Be sure to check my facebook page ( [link] )! Thank you! :D

Hey Bioware! You own the sexy Knight-Captain Cullen! Make him a LI in DA3! ;D

Is there any chance you will ever put this up on etsy or for sale?
I really, really like your interpretation of Cullen and all the recent fuzz about him got me hooked yet again...

This one is sold already, but I will be making more DA related stuff for sure. I can't wait for DA3 and I imagine I would be really inspired by the game to make lots of Cullen related stuff ^^.
Thank you so much for your interest! :D

Although I am not a fan of the Templars and I detest the Chantry, I have say that this is one of the most beautiful pendants you have created so far. I admire your talent for crafting such wonderful, tiny pieces of jewellery and add so many intricate and beautiful details to them. If I would not know, I would say this is a professional's work. Have you ever considered about working as a jeweller? You have the talent for it. :nod:

I definitly don't want one of those, I NEED one of those! It's just amazing, very well crafted, I found this link of Facebook and now that I'm checking your DA page I'm having strokes around herel. lol

I see you're in Poland, so I'd like to ask if you can ship to Brazil (consider I'm able to choose which I'm buying cause all your crafts are amazing!). Is there any e-mail I can contact you?

Anyway congratulations on your work (not only this one, of course) they all look stunning, you have an eye for details and materials, all amazing!

Nononnono! *fanning with a towel* No strokes allowed! ;)
I send some things all around Europe, to the USA and Australia, and all reached their destinations. Now some my mini-pendants are going to Japan and South Africa and I hope all will be right here too ^^. It takes time but I'm sending priority registered mail and if they will be lost somehow the are just returning to me and I can send them again (this happened once, but the second time it worked :)). I would love to send something to Brasil, that way I will have all of the continets in my collection \o/ XD. How could I not love the internetz :D.

I have already responded to you on facebook, but you can contact me via Deviantart PM or on Etsy if you prefer :).
Thank you so much! :heart:

The zirconias are set in clay and backed with it. The Swarovsky gems don't loose the colors in the heat, so thats really convenient :).
