New work in March

I've always liked using black diamonds with matrix turquoise and decided to go full bore with this super piece of Kingman. Of course once it was finished I had to figure out how many diamonds I used. At some point someone would ask me and it would only be appropriate that I have an accurate answer. So, after procrastinating several times, I used a permanent gold ink marker and marked each stone so I would know it had been counted. 189 black Diamonds. Then I removed the ink with acetone. A friend asked if I'd counted twice to be sure but if I counted again and got a different number then I'd have to do it a third time so I left it alone.
