Charleston, SC 32º47.351N | 79º55.461W

The first time I witnessed the rich cobalt blue of the Gulf Stream, I tried and failed to capture it in a photo, like I do.

This morning I was walking through the Farmer's Market in Charleston and saw this:

The artist, Katie Gates, conjured the Gulf Stream from sterling silver and blue striped agate.

See some of her other work here.
And now I carry the mighty and entrancing Gulf Stream on my finger. 

Let's hope this doesn't mean I'll get all stirred up in north winds.
