Cut one 2-1/4 inch length of 1.7mm sterling silver 3+1 Figaro chain so that there is a large link on both ends. Cut eleven 2-3/4 inch lengths of 1.7mm sterling silver 3+1 Figaro chain so that there are three small links on both ends.
Open one 6.5mm sterling silver round jumpring and pass it through the first link of six 2-3/4 inch lengths of chain and the first link of the 2-1/4 inch length of chain. Taking care to not allow the attached chain to slip off the open jumpring, pass the free end of the 2-1/4 inch length of chain through the hole in a 27mm Swarovski Devoted 2 U heart pendant then add the last link to the jumpring. Attach the first link of the five remaining 2-3/4 inch lengths of chain to the jumpring. Close the jumpring.
Open the loop on the 17mm sterling silver fishhook earwire and attach it to the jumpring. Close the loop.
Repeat Steps 1 - 3 to create the second earring.
