Diamond draw

Postby Guest » April 27th, 2004, 7:55 am

I've been asked to incorporate the give away of a diamond pendant at a gig for an automobile dealers association. Although I won't be doing a platform show per se (I'll be doing walkaround in the hospitality room later) the client would like to give this pendant away during the dinner hour using some sort of magic theme. I have a couple of ideas but I'm sure someone on this forum has much more experience in this regard than I and I'm asking for any ideas that you may have. Thank you for your input.

Assuming the pendant is small and delicate how about a CARD TRICK?

Force the FOUR of diamonds on the recipient (who as a prize has won a chance to appear with you on stage) and then produce the FIVE of diamonds from somewhere which would be impressive if it were the correct card.

Correct your mistake by folding the card, tearing the center pip from it and handing her the mutilated card.

Now, as an afterthought say "You might as well have this too" and transform the torn pip into the pendant using a TT.

A bit of wax on the inside of the tip will cause the pip to remain inside as you pour the gift from the tip. You could also simply have the necklace in a loose fingerpalm under the tip.

Other methods are of course possible...
