String one 4mm Swarovski Xilion bicone bead onto one 1-inch gold-plated eyepin. Form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire creating a 4mm bicone beading link. Repeat to create a total of two 4mm bicone beading links.
Open the loop on a gold-plated leverback earwire and connect it to one loop on a 4mm bicone beading link. Close the loop.
Open the opposite loop on the 4mm bicone beading link and pass it through the top loop of the antiqued gold-plated ''pewter'' knot finding. Close the loop.
Open one loop on a second 4mm bicone beading link and pass it through the bottom loop of the antiqued gold-plated ''pewter'' knot finding. Close the loop.
Open one 7mm gold-plated round jumpring and pass it through the opposite loop on the second 4mm bicone beading link and one 10mm Swarovski Xilion heart pendant. Close the jumpring.
Repeat Steps 1 - 5 to create a second earring.
