Burning Plastic...

As you may know I make earrings out of recycled materials. I've recently been running into problems with the edges. After cutting and filing with both a metal file and a dremel tool I noticed the edges are still rough and flaky. I searched for answers yesterday on About.com and some friendly people suggested I use a flame or torch to "flame polish". So that is what I will do today. I'll let you know how it works out...

About.com is a great site for information on just about anything! I posted my question on a forum and I received feedback and helpful information. Check it out...

What kind of recycled materials do you look for to make jewelry with?
