This is the secret of how to do this ring magic trick.
You can also buy your invisible thread and is easy enough to find online. Simply search the term ‘invisible thread’ and you’ll have loads of places to choose from. You will need to a bit patient when working with invisible thread as it is hard to see being so fine (but that is what you want remember!)
The next few steps will show you how to make the ‘gimmick’ of this ring magic trick. You will need a pen and your invisible thread for the first step.* For the purpose of the instructions, I have used black cotton thread so that you can see what to do with your invisible thread.
Remove the ink chamber (also called the ‘reservoir’) from the plastic outside tube (see the picture). Fasten one end of a piece of invisible thread around the tip of the pen, like shown in the picture.
Measure the thread to be long enough to reach from your chest to your hand when holding the pen outstretched in front of you. (About an arm’s length.)
Secure the thread around the tip of the pen with a small piece of see through sticky tape. The less you use, the better as it will stop the ink chamber from going back into the plastic tube. The pen needs to look un-gimmicked. Push the ink chamber back into the tube, now with the invisible thread tied around it.
Tie the other end of the piece of invisible thread to a safety pin. Be patient with this step. This is a simple magic trick to do, but takes time to set up to be able to perform it.
You will use the pin to attached the thread to your clothing. Make sure that the pin is out of sight.
You are nearly ready to perform the ring magic trick. Place the ring over the tip of the pen, catching the thread as show in the picture.
Attach the thread to your clothes with the safety pin. Make sure that it is hidden from view. The thread now runs from the pen, through the ring to you.
Be careful with your movements as the tread might snap if it gets caught by accident.
You are ready to perform the ring magic trick.
By moving the pen closer and further away from yourself, the ring will move and slide up and down the pen as if powered by your mind, even defying gravity!
You have made and performed the ring magic trick!
