3 wooden red beads are strung across 2 gold cords. A spectator is asked to hold the two ends of the cords. A cloth is placed over the center where the beads are, and almost instantly, the magician removes the beads from the two interlaced cords. No sleights of hand, quick and easy set-up. Beads and cords are solid, no secret openings or manipulations. Everything is examinable afterwords.
