Introduction: Floppy Disc Jewelry

About: I like turtles.

inspired by a few other instructables and slideshows like this one mainly https://www.instructables.com/id/Earrings-made-from-floppy-disk-parts/ , i decided to make a chain necklace for myself and a pair of earrings for my girlfriend. tell me what you think.

note- dont tell me that im copying, i havent ever seen the necklace done in that way before, plus the earring design i altered a little bit. even still, people put instructables on here so that other people can try to make what they did.

    I like them better without the V ring and just one jump ring.
    I made myself some just like the earrings you made today. Thanks.

    break open the plastic case. then when you have just the black floppy circle with the metalpiece. pop the piece out of the center with your thumbs

    yeah you can cut it open. since the piece is in the direct center and is metal i think it should be fine
