Chinese Linking Rings by Sam Dalal

No one knows the originator of this mysterious effect. Linking Rings were introduced into Europe about a century ago by a troupe of Chinese Magicians, and have been named the "Chinese Linking Rings" ever since.

The basic effect is that a number of solid metal rings that have been examined by the audience magically link and un-link at the magicians' command. The rings are linked into chains and designs comprising of two to eight rings. The effect is capable of infinite variations, and the routine can be as short or long as you like. It can be performed silently to music, or with a patter presentation, with or without the help of assistants from the audience, as your fancy dictates.

No rings are included with these instructions but they can be purchased at every well-stocked magic shop.
