Repeat adding beadcaps and heishi beads in this order for a total of three sets. Form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire to create a beading link.
Open a 6mm round silver-plated jumpring and thread it through a Swarovski 17mm Devoted 2 U Heart crystal pendant and one loop of the beading link. Close the jumpring.
Open the heart loop of the silver-plated earwire and thread it through the opposite loop of the beading link. Close the heart loop.
Repeat Steps 1 - 3 to create the second earring.
