String one Swarovski 4mm fireopal bicone bead, one Swarovski 12mm wild heart bead and one Swarovski 4mm light Siam bicone bead onto one 1-5/8 inch gold-filled eyepin. Form a simple loop on the straight end of the wire creating a beading link.
Open the top loop on the beading link and pass it through the loop on a 17x10mm gold-filled angular earwire. Close the loop.
Open the bottom loop on the beading link and pass it through one hole on the gold-plated and Swarovski rectangle link. Close the loop.
Open one 7mm gold-plated jumpring and pass it through the opposite hole on the gold-plated and Swarovski rectangle link and one 14mm Swarovski heart drop. Close the jumpring.
Repeat Steps 1 - 4 to create the second earring.
