The creation of jewelry involves processes, which are often very experimental and intuitive, encompassing both the creative process and production techniques. In this paper, which is based on a recently realized research project in narrative jewelry, we will reveal and reflect on the process of creating and producing a series of jewelry pieces, based on a narrative musical work - The Carnival of the Animals. Due to the nonlinear process of the project and the co-evolution of drawings, narrative illustrations and jewelry pieces, the project is part of the emergent paradigm of design methodology. Taking into account the dominant role of perception in the creative design process, we will explain and reflect on the jewelry project through the application of the Perception-in-Action Model, which is based on the emergence of design solutions in a co-evolutionary process guided by perception.
