Okie, so I baked my CD and it came out pretty cool. So onto making the actual necklace. This part involves drilling and finding wire and all that stuff that this crafster is waaay too lazy for. So I used an old necklace I was about to throw out.

Old Necklace:

Metal Piece:


Final Product:

I especially like it because the pieces are quite a bit larger than in the original, and I tend to like more chunky stuff. If I could do it again, I'd probably round out the corners more.

Thanks Inna for this wonderful idea and tutorial!!

I have to say everyones work is beautiful. So today was my craft day with my neighbors granddaugter, picked her up went to the 99cents store and the dollar store, picked up lots of little crafts,,,,but then i told her we were going to cook cd's she looked at me like i was strange for a minute because i didnt tell her why, but hey, she was up for it just because she wanted to cook cd's we scrounged up 6 various cd's and got to cooking...we didnt use the microwave just the oven. we havent made anything yet they are still in cd form, hubbys going to cut them with a hot knife for us.. And hes also giving us 50 cds to use for this that were cheap. and since they curled up next time im going to make them flat by putting a dish and sheet of tin foil over it....these turned out pretty neat i think. Thanks so much for posting about this it really was fun just to see what would happen.

What a fantastic idea.
Right after I read it I had to try it.

This is my first contribution to the site.

I used old AOL cd's.

Cut out littles pieces and put them together with jump rings. I'm going to put these on memory wire.

Then I tried melting AOL pieces to blank cd pieces.

I liked the way that turned out too. I put gloss varnish over the top so they wouldn't pop off.

Now i'm working on bending little pieces into rings.
We'll see how that works out.

Here's another one I made!
Well, I usually only get about 4 good pieces from 1 cd... but they're so flipping cheap it doesn't matter.
Anyway, this one is a bit smaller and I sanded the edges round, sealed the back with mod podge and acrylic clear spray then silver paint then more acrylic sealer.  Then I glued a sterling silver bail on it and strung it on a sterling silver necklace.  Everytime I've worn this anyplace I get tons of compliments.... almost everyone that talks to me says it's gorgeous.
Thanks again for the idea!

I am just trying the crap AOL ones now. And I forgot about them and burnt them.
Thet turn out clear, but they still look cool.
The blue necklace was from a CD-R that I screwed up on friday.
I am looking for different types to see what colors they come in.
The bead pins should be available in any craft store. they are for making bead dangles I think.

My Mother in Law bought me the dremel tool a few years ago so I don't know how much it is - its a hand held drill, polisher, burnisher - its really cool.
I didn't do anything to the back but i am thinking of glueing them together so that they look the same on both sides.

Happy Crafting

haha this has been one of the scariest things ive ever done. ya never know, yr house or oven just might blow up and catch on fire or something. my oven's at least 15 year's old and bleh. but anyway, do you think these are worth keeping and making into jewelry? they remind me of atlantis and mermaids or something. lol  Tongue 

crappy camera and i couldnt get the lighting any better.  Undecided

First posting of something I made with the help of this wonderful group.
go to http://groups.msn.com/InsaneIdeas/crafts.msnw?action=ShowPhoto&PhotoID=12 (lost in the internet and I don't know how to get it back - sorry)
I took a CD and Nuked it in the microwave for 5 seconds, then cut it with scissors into equal sized pieces, then drilled holes with the dremel tool, and then baked them in my oven at 400 degrees until they started to soften. They go from the iridescence to this wild blue color when they melt. Then I didn't have anything to make a chain out of so I used bead pins to make a chain. My friends want me to make and sell them so I went to the comic book store and asked if they could save me all the throw away cds they get (game CD's are purple) so I will post more when I make them.

I bent the bead pin and then made another loop for the next bead pin to go into.

I seen this a while back and so I had to try it.  I used a blue CD and didn't risk the microwaving....but I guess I didn't leave it in the oven too long because I had no problems with the fumes   heres what mine turned out like   I was pleased  Smiley

I saw this and just had to try it. I made some earrings with the microwave method (no pic yet, sorry), and a necklace with the oven method.  Grin
