This is the first CD bracelet I made



And while making this one, I decided to melt the Cd in the oven and then let it solidify again. Now the Cd's are very odd shaped and burnt, but I like it.
 

 
This is my new one. while the cd's were still hot from the oven, I bent them a little. now this bracelet looks like a bangle when I wear it.

Thanks for looking Smiley

Thankyou Smiley. All the effects that are on the first bracelet come from the type of CD. I don't think I did anything different.

did you cut up the cd before you put it in the oven, or after?

Have you ever put a brick through a big plate-glass window, Ralph? It makes a wonderful goddamn noise, and the people inside run around like rats in a firestorm. It's fun, Ralph, and a bargain at any price

Thank you  Grin What you do is put a blank CD in the microwave for 5 seconds (don't be afraid of sparks). The CD should be burnt and crackled, and usually the foil will crumble off. Next, cut the Cd's into the shape you want and place them in the oven at 300 degrees Celsius for about 3 minutes, just until you can see the cd's bend a little bit. That is all you do! Smiley

Oh! Those turned out super cute. I love using CDs as well. I only have made necklaces and earrings though. (Never had the supplies to do a bracelete Cry) Good job on them!

I don't know what kluv does, or if it even matters, but I use foil side down. Smiley
