i love these! i sooo can't wait to make them.
my friend gave me a huge spool of cheap-o cd-rs when she moved. they are all kindsa crazy different colors, and since they aren't very quality cds i don't plan on using them to actually burn music on to...so i might as well use tjem for this.
hooray! thanks for the idea!

whoo hoo, i loved your idea and i just had to try it right away. While i didn't use my microwave (i was scared i would blow it up) i melted them in a mini toaster oven.They bubbled and looked really cool. After drilling holes in them i turned them into neclaces and am already getting compliments! thanks a lot for the great idea!

I did it without the microwave and it didn't really turn out as well as I thought =\..and I know I must've done something wrong or have crappy cd's because I do believe I'm the first person to post on this thread, that's disapppointed with the results. It kinda..just..wrinkled up. It looked almost like that shiny wrapping paper you get that gets a little wrinkled, it wasn't anywhere near as cool as the pictures I've seen posted here, and the blue stuff started peelling off almost like paper...so I did ask persmission to blow things up in the microwave and hopefully it'll make it look better.

mine turned out ok too...though i did notice the "flaking" off that someone mentioned--but i think that's b/c i had it in for  too long.
i found a cd in a parking lot today, it's partially cracked, and has crazy scratched--it probably got run over, but i can't wait to see how it turns out after i nuke it and bake it!

i was wondering what kind of tool you use to make a loop on the other end of a bead pin..
all i have at home is a pair of really old rusty pliers... which obviously doesn't do any good..
so, what tool works best?



ps. i made a charm bracelet(ish) thing about a week ago and loving it!  i'll post a pic as soon as i find the digital camera...

I bought myself a pair of round nose pliers for $10 (canadian) at the local bead store. I have seen the same ones at walmart for about the same. I used needlenose pliers for years, they take a bit longer to form the loops but you can get them to look the same.

I just tried mine... it actually didn't turn out blue.  I'm not sure why that is, any idea?  But really, I have so much to thank you for! I was stuck babysitting my younger brother, 7 year old cousin and my brothers friend! After a run away attempt, trashing the house and several time outs, I finally pulled this out and got them to sit down!  We had some problems, no way to really attach the cd pieces to the chains I had.  It all worked out though! And now I've got a great new necklace... Thanks so much!

Love,
Rae
P.S. Oh! That flaking?  I found that you can just use clear packing tape on the side with the label, just stick it over and cut it into the shape.  It works really well...
