Avid football fans won’t be caught offside with these unique repurposed necklaces made by Swiss jewelry artist, Noémie Doge.

Doge says her work offers a “richness that doesn’t come from the preciousness of materials but from a visual strength, primitively symbolic of the object.” Pieces from the Podosphaïrophilie collection have been exhibited in Geneva, Bern, Solothurn, London, and Amsterdam, and you can currently view them at the Caroline Van Hoek Gallery in Brussels.
