In the Winter of 2020 I was having treatment for Cancer in a big hospital in Melbourne.  Every morning I would see the hot air balloons floating about gently in the distance from my hospital room window.  The elegant curves of the  balloons inspired the shape of these earring wires.  Inspiration is everywhere.
