Does the shape look familiar? Even if you’ve never intentionally left a store with a tag on, almost all of us have walked out with one still attached as an unintended pin of shame. Designer Michał Jońca found inspiration in a funny way, modeling his design after the microchipped security devices commonly affixed to clothing, designed to warn retailers of merchandise exiting without a sale.

In Jońca’s hands each of the shapes serve a more ornamental purpose. Poured and mixed pigment colored resin is matched with a brass safety pin on the back, each TEGES Fake Security Tag Jewelry is a wearable call for shoplifters of the world unite…sans microchip.
