Interesting jewelry can be made by repurposing those old CD's. This guide is about making jewelry from CDs and DVDs.
These beads were made from recycled CDs. When you make them, they are a bit stinky so use a well ventilated area or a mask.
Do be careful - They get hot!
I hope the pictures show you all you need to know. But here are some instructions to help I hope.
It takes a bit of trial and error to get them right, but that's the basic idea. Anyway have fun. DON'T INHALE THE FUMES! BEWARE BECAUSE THEY DO GET HOT!
If you discover an idea to modify the making or something please let me know! Have fun!- Cathy :o)

those are so neat.......thanks for the tips.
You are so clever.
I am not sure what you mean by a heat gun. Please clarify. Thank you!
Since there are so many types of plastics which give off toxic ( and I mean cancer producing ) fumes when heated AND there is a danger of getting burned doing this..........I suggest NOT trying this at home. WHY take the chance? MOM xxxooo
Beautiful brooches and earrings made from recycled CDs.
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?
