I have been having some fun figuring out different ways to cook, boil, mold, cut and form CDs into jewelry. I made a pretty funky CD necklace a couple of weeks ago. First, I boiled the CD in water until it was fairly easy to cut with scissors. I cut out the shapes I wanted and then placed them on a cookie sheet and in an oven at 400 degrees F. After about 5 minutes the CD parts started to bubble. I let them cool and then made a necklace with some vintage fabric and cord.
I love how the CDs look when they bubble. Looks like glass! I will have to experiment more and make a series of necklaces.
