For those who think shoplifting has a certain daredevil appeal but who aren't willing to actually take that risk themselves, TEGES are the perfect accessory. The resin pins are designed to look just like the security tags commonly used in shopping malls and clothing retailers.

Though the TEGES pins do indeed take the shape of the microchip-outfitted security tags, Warsaw-based designer Michal Jonca has added a little more style to the bland sensors. Rather than making his pins the authentic shades of white, off-white, or gray, the TEGES pins come in a variety of pleasant, pale shades. These include cobalt, sea foam green, honey yellow, and peach.

TEGES pins are shaped with opaque colored resins, and the various shapes are meant to cover the different styles used for security tags.
