Well I break it first, and be careful, the edges are sharp and the foil can come off the plastic. I then baked it for no longer  than 5 min (probably about 3) just enough to melt the edges and bring out the bubbles. Be careful again, the plastic is crazy hot, but it will be pliable for a few seconds after removal if you need to manipulate it at all, move fast.

Thanks for checking it out!  Grin

How did you break it? Weird question, I  know, but I once tried to break a CD and had to heat it with a hair drier and cut it with scissors. It was terribly time consuming and tedious.

Your necklace is lovely.

Thanks. I just used a heafty pair of scissors and some elbow grease. because my pieces didn't have to be any particular size or shape it didn't take me too long, but then again, I have no concept of time...

Wow, I've seen a lot of recycled CD necklaces, but this is definitely the best. Baking the CD in the oven really transformed the material! And I love the combination of the elegant, classic shape and the irregular, distressed components that make it up.

Very nice. I haven't been around the forums in quite a while, and this was a great first project to see when I came back Smiley

It doesn't even resemble a CD that is so amazing!

That looks fantastic!  Did it put off a lot of fumes when you baked it?
