Beautiful brooches and earrings made from recycled CDs.

Approximate Time: 1/2 to 1 hr, not including drying times

Supplies:

Instructions:

Cut CD's carefully into shapes desired using heavy-duty kitchen/utility shears.

Decorate brooch and earring shapes as desired with cut-out paper designs, stick on rhinestones, etc. using crafting glue.

If using paper designs, cover with Modge Podge. Let dry.

After jewelry pieces are dry, apply a layer of "Glossy Accents" (available in craft stores in the scrapbooking area). You may wish to apply it with a small paintbrush.

After this dries, you can add glitter glue or glitter snow if desired.

When your design is completely dry, glue on the appropriate jewelry findings (such as attaching jump rings and earrings) for the earrings or brooches.

Voila! Lovely recycled jewelry!

I am interested in making earrings from perhaps old CDs, DVDs, etc. Does anyone have instructions on how to cut, mold, and use them for this purpose?

Though I have not made jewelry out of cd cases, I think this is a good idea. You an cut the shape that you want with old heavy duty scissors. Remember to sand the edges, Just drill holes for the findings and you are all set.

I went to a class a long time ago where we were taught how to make earrings from recycled cds. Do you know where I could get instructions to do this again?
