The heart is made in 2 parts, as you can see in the diagram. The technique that is used is daisy picot technique and the pearl tatting. In the diagram you see 2 flowers in the top. In those flowers the green line is Shuttle 1 and the red line is shuttle 2. In the flowers the red leaves are the daisy picots.

Ch: 5 – 5 – 5 – 5 +(third p daisy p) – 5-5-5 +(third p next daisy p) repeat this on 2 more daisy picots. Chain goes on:
