For the other, smaller, side of the heart, wrap on three 4 mm jet bicones, one 4 mm Siam bicone, three 6 mm Siam bicones and five 4 mm Siam bicones.

Step 9
Create a bead link from the 10mm pearl. Attach to the top of the heart. 
Step 10
Cut a 20" length of organza ribbon and add ribbon ends and a lobster clasp to the ends. 
Step 11
