From 1928 to 1930, the Russian writer Elsa Triolet designed necklaces that her companion Louis Aragon, co-founder of the surrealist magazine Littérature, proposed to Elsa Schiaparelli. Man Ray photographed the most famous of these pieces, the aspirin necklace, composed of porcelain beads with a shape similar to that of aspirin tablets.
Elsa Triolet described this episode of her life in her essay published in 1933, Colliers (Necklaces).
