Does anyone know the appropriate size of the beads for his necklace. I'm looking at some that are 16mm long by 6 mm wide.

I'm just not sure if those would be big enough or not. A little help if anyone knows?

Ref pic? I have no idea who Howl is or what kind of shaped beads you're looking for.

OH SHOOT! I knew I was forgetting something. -_-; Sorry about that. Anyhow here it is!

I'd certainly say that's the right size. =)

Ah...thank you! I was hoping it was!

I've been making Howl's Moving Castle jewelry sets and selling them on eBay for a few years. The teardrop beads I use for the earrings are 20mm, the rounds are 6mm.

I based my replicas off the official Studio Ghibli jewelry though. All my clients seem happy with the sizes I selected.

This is what they look like. (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=270224424651&ssPageName=STRK:MESO:IT&ih=017) Except the red beads in that photo are 5mm's and I use 6mm now add more balance.

Hope this helps!

Oh it does! I've actually bought them, but I'm thinking a few mm's smaller won't make a huge amount of difference...

Thank you so much for your response. What type of beads did you use for your necklace. O_O I am actually thinking of piecing a chain together for mine...like with bar links and such.

The official Ghibli necklace uses twisted gold bar links, it looks quite lovely. I saw one that someone in Singapore has made using that type of material. HERE (http://www.sgcosplayclub.org/forums/index.php?act=ST&f=19&t=222&) is a pic. The pendant looks a little large, but you get the idea.

I've been using metal beads I get from the store here, nothing exotic or special
