-====== Ring on Cord (Tied to Wrists) a.k.a. The Slave Bangle ====== 
-According to Al Mann, this was invented by Edward T. Goddard and published in an unidentified 1926 magazine see Mann's //​[[http://​​display/​22348/​The+Psychic+Ring/​13|The Psychic Ring]]//, p. 13). However, this seems unlikely, given "​Improved Examined Ring on Cord" in //​[[http://​​display/​40007/​Elliott+s+Last+Legacy/​267|Elliott'​s Last Legacy]]//, 1923, p. 265, which is clearly an elaboration on the standard method. Will Avis describes the trick in his "​Tricks for All" column in the March 20, 1909, issue of Goldston'​s //​[[http://​​display/​10744/​Magician+Monthly+Vol+05/​39|The Magician]]//,​ p. 43. It is unclear if all the tricks presented in his column were claimed as original, but it seems so. Avis does offer a nice touch, by using a clear glass bracelet.
