With this brand new illusion of ours you will cause amazement and provide excellent entertainment for your audience. It is equally suitable for children and adults, very easy to present and stunning in its effect.
You present a necklace consisting of fifteen!!! colourful beads, threaded together on a strong string. The necklace is held over a glass vessel - which you can borrow from somewhere - and cut. The beads drop into the glass, the string stays in your hand. A nice mess: Red, blue, yellow, green, purple, black and orange beads all mixed up. A child or a lady from the audience is asked to put the beads, in any order he or she wants, into a totally transparent Plexiglas tube (37 cm long) which you hold in readiness and which can be examined by those interested. You briefly show them how you achieve a nice, colourful pattern, the rest is done by the volunteer. He or she puts the individual beads into the tube freely and without any influence being exerted, you make the string disappear.
A brief shake, the beads fly from the tube and connect in the air to form a long string of beads. Completely convincing, no exchange, no messing about.
Ideas for a further presentation variant are enclosed in the pack: The string is cut and then divided into short bits. The volunteer puts the beads into the tube. In the meantime you do magic to make the string whole again. Then the string is set alight, goes up in a bright flame, and at that moment the beads are thrown from the tube and are all strung up again.
You get the colourful plastic beads which are made especially for this effect, the Plexiglas tube and a clever aid which makes the procedure child's play. Can be presented while you are surrounded, at a short distance, but also on a stage; no mirrors, wires, etc.
