These shrink plastic jewelry pieces by Dana Damki are wearable Shrinky Dink accessories that turn kids toys into stylish brooches for adults.

The toy-made creations feature adorable illustrations drawn on shrink plastic with permanent marker. After the pieces are shrunken, Damki bakes and varnishes the creations to seal in the designs. Damki's creations make for whimsical wearable art that puts a fun twist on the classic kids toy.

The jewelry features humorous illustrations by the German illustrator, including outrageous depictions of cartoonish humans and animals in sweaters. Each of the characters has a shocked expression on their faces, some for no apparent reason.

These whimsical designs are sold through Damki's Etsy shop. Each character has a unique name that embodies their personalities, like 'KATZI on skateboard' and 'Icecream Bear.'
