David R... "My contribution" to what Cervon is doing is something that was passed on to me, in private, by Al Koran. After Koran died, and I was with Bruce talking about the trick, I felt that it would be OK to give him the information.
Initially I told Bruce about the final move that I devised (it is on an about to be released video from Joe Stevens) that uses a pencil with a bit of invisible thread.
The effect is that you have two rings hanging on a pencil, seemingly linked, when suddenly one visibly drops off the other (thanks to the simple hookup with a 4 inch piece of thread).
The Koran item was visually the same, using a pen, but the modus operandi was different. Bruce, I believe, decided to use the pen version.
Should I put the effect into my performing repertior I would use the effect, but not sure which method.
BTW... for the record the "Himber" finger rings were from the genius mind of Persi Diaconis, when he was working for Himber. Persi went to manufacturing jeweler Willie Schneider (in NY) and the Himber Ring was created. It was NOT a variation on the arthritic ring as many believe. :cool:
