Open up a jump ring and attach it to the first loop on the first heart drop. Whilst it is still open, thread on one DROP A. Close securely.

Open up another jump ring and attach it to the second loop on the first heart drop. Whilst it is still open, thread on one DROP B. Close securely.

Open up another jump ring and attach it to the third (middle loop) loop on the first heart drop. Whilst it is still open, thread on one DROP C. Close securely.
