Start with making your chain mail for the heart to dangle from. Open 20 Jump rings:
STEP 1
Add open second jump ring to first unopened jump ring (this is your base) and close. Add third jump ring to the first and second jump rings where they meet by bringing the third jump ring around the first jump ring and through the second jump ring and close, keeping hold of the first jump ring. Add the fourth jump ring in the same manner as the third, by bringing around the first, and through the second and third jump rings and close.
STEP 2
Add the fifth jump ring by bringing through the second, third and fourth jump rings (this is now your base) and close. Add the sixth and seventh jump rings in the same manner as the third and fourth, by wrapping around the three jump rings and through jump ring five and then six and close.
STEP 3
Repeat Step 2 with jump rings eight, nine and ten, and close.
STEP 4
Add Jump ring 11 by bringing through jump rings eight, nine and ten and close.
STEP 5
Repeat Steps 1-4 for second earring.

You should have three sets of 3 interlocking jump rings with a single jump ring on each end x2.
STEP 6
Put horseshoe bails on Crystal Passions hearts. (You may have to open it up a tiny bit, very carefully, with your tools to accomodate the crystal width.)
STEP 7
Open single jump ring on chainmaille chains and attach to horseshoe bails and close.
STEP 8
Open earring loops and attach other single jump ring on chainmaille chains w/ heart to earrings and close. You're done!
