Hi everyone, I know there's a ring, string and things forum but I thought I'd post my question here given it might have more to do with a string/rope move??? Anyway, I'm working on developing a simple 3 phase ring and string/rope routine (using a finger ring for closeup and a nut for parlor). The 1st phase uses the ring off string move that I learnt from a Johnny Ace Palmer dvd and the 2nd phase involves removing the ring or nut from the rope after making a knot in the rope taught by Aldo Colombini. For the 3rd and final phase I'd like to do a move I've seen quite a few times by other magicians. It involves holding the threaded ring in a fist, grabbing one end of the rope with the other hand and placing it over the back of the fist so that the end dangles on the other side of the fist and then grabbing the other end of the rope and placing it also over the fist and allowing it to dangle on the opposite side. You then open the hand to show the ring has vanished. Hope my description made sense! I find it a beautifully deceptive move. Does anyone know who originated this move? Grateful for your advice:) John

It sounds to me like you are describing the Clifton Ring Move, and if that is it, it is very deceptive. The name of the creator is Emile Clifton, who was both an actor and a magician. Pete Biro wrote a book on his work, as Emile was a mentor/teacher to Pete. The Clifton Ring Move can be found in numerous effects and routines out there. Check out the following link and watch for the final phase at the 1:54 mark.

Is that the move to which you are referring?

By the way, if you are into ring and rope or ring and string effects, that one from the link is one of the best - the Bob Miller Relentless Ring & String Routine.

I hope this information is useful to you.

Dr J, that's the one! Many thanks for replying and for pointing me towards Bob Miller. With your information I did a search of Emile Clifton on the Café. What a great place to learn about the people that contribute to this art. John

Anytime John, and assuming it has not taken you a couple of years to get up to 15 posts, welcome to the Café!
