This exhibition looks back over a little-known interest of Elsa Triolet, more famous for her literary talents and acts of resistance than for her jewellery.
Yet the artist had designed and produced a line of necklaces, bracelets and sets with a surprisingly modern avant-garde feel, working with top names in Haute Couture including Elsa Schiaparelli.
Among the pieces on display is the iconic collaboration between the two Elsas dating from 1930: the aspirin necklace composed of glass paste beads, metal wire and beige cotton braid.
Elsa Triolet recounted this episode in her life in her essay Colliers (Necklaces) published in 1933.
