Hi Guys,

I'm hoping that someone can point me in the right direction. I need to be able to vanish a ring.

Here are the conditions:

1. This is a dummy ring and will never come back into play
2. I don't want to use a rope, bag or box
3. I would like it to be close to be bare handed.......similar to Sean Fields Hidden Hand, but have it work
4. I'm open to a reel, but the dummy ring must already be on the reel.
5. This will be done in a parlour setting.

Thanks for your help,

You could either use a pull of sleeve it. Those are the first things that come to mind

Have you tried the complete coin vanishes in Bobo?

Or Sean Goodman's Secret Servante, or a Topit.

The ring does not have to be already on a reel pull, and you can do a fake transfer or the French Drop, let slip over the tip of a finger, and then as you reach forward, release and show the hand empty.

Whoops, I have said to much for free.

More - oops, free stuff. Study thimble vanishes. Many can apply to rings as well.

Where it on your hand and as you remove it you will place it into classic palm and perform a spider vanish. You can then pocket it or sleeve it if need be Smile

If your using a table you could use a servante and ditch it there (or a black art well). Magnets work well for ditching in various places.

John Archer in his Educating Archer DVD shows a ring vanish using a specially prepared handkerchief. It's not barehanded but it does look uncomplicated and allows for easy ditching.

Maybe you should buy one of those "red velvet bags on a stick", (commonly called a change bag) and, used by many to vanish an 18" silk for Frank Ducrot's 20th Century Silks but, it could also be used to vanish any small item. You could also use it to take up a collection from the audience. (That's what churches "usta" use it for, only the church's bag was not gaffed.)
