Crochet heart ear drops with method of making it

Hello lovely people
Just made these earrings with a pearl, to suit the hairpin and broomstick lace triangular bridal shower wrap I made.
Here is the method I used for the earrings.
Choose yarn to go with the apparel. Take a pair of ear findings. You will get them in any art supply store as Joann's or Michaels. You will need two pearl beads, six 11/0 glass seed beads in gold color, two pin head findings to thread the pearl and three glass beads on, and two jump rings for the heart to be fastened to the ear finding. Tools of course.
Start with a magic ring with yarn and work into the ring always.. two chains in the ring to count as one DC.
One DC into ring.
Three triple crochet into ring
Three DC into ring
Two triple crochet into ring
Chain one for a very narrow tip or chain two for a little wider tip for the heart bottom part ( the tip .. The V part of the heart) I usually use one chain but since I needed some space to hang the pearl used two chains here.
Two triple crochet now into ring
Three DC into ring
Three triple crochet into ring
One DC into ring
Chain two to count as one DC
Slip stitch into ring
Now pull the ring ends tight until the heart takes shape.. And no ring gap is seen.
Fasten off and pull the ends tight and darn in the edges.
Now add the findings.
DC is double crochet! Vary the thread and pearls etc to match your dress.
Bye now till we meet again
Lots of love
