The Necklace by Max Krause(c. 2008) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
So this little beauty is one that will probably disappoint some people because the method doesn’t require any intricate gimmicks. However, for me, it is one of the most practical and potentially most devastating items Max sells.
The biggest hurdle for me was actually wearing the cool looking necklace – I’ve never really worn a necklace! But for this effect at least I’m going to start, because I believe the impact on lay people is that strong.
Once again with Max’s routines you need to follow the whole routine before making your mind-up. I have found that by watching the whole DVD or reading all the instructions you will see how a good trick turns into a miracle.
The necklace looks great and authentic – it is a great ice breaker if you need one, and the look on the spectator’s face is priceless when it changes to their card. Everything can be examined before and after. It is a very memorable effect.
Effect: You are walking down the street, sitting in a restaurant, reading a book on a park bench, waiting for the bus, shopping at the mall, or any other various social activity. You strike up a conversation with a complete stranger. The topic turns to the necklace you are wearing and its meaning. You explain to them it is the word magic in Chinese and requires the characters on both sides to create the word as you take it off to let them look at it even more closely.
Invariably they will ask you if you do magic to which you reply “Yes would you like to see a trick?” You place the necklace back on your neck and reach into your pocket and produce a deck of cards. You have a card chosen and replaced back into the deck and you hand them the deck to shuffle. They return the deck to you and you explain that the reason you chose Chinese writing is because they are known for predicting future events citing a few examples. You then tell them that you had a premonition that you would be standing/sitting in the very spot you are with them showing them a card trick at that exact moment and ask if they believe you.
Regardless of the answer you say “Take a look at my necklace” They do and to their utter disbelief are the words “Turn Over” where the 1st symbol was. They turn the necklace over and find their card staring at them on the back where the 2nd symbol was! Magic does not get any more memorable than this!! The quintessential icebreaker!!
Made in solid silver by hand and guaranteed to astonish and bewilder all who witness your performance! Comes complete with everything necessary to perform including an instructional DVD.
