Latest furniture designs from Bear Cabin Miniatures



AIM members Hywel and Julia Jeffreys of Bear Cabin Miniatures specialise in 12th scale miniatures for a Fantasy or Tudor theme. Hywel designs and creates his own unique furniture from hardwood, which he cuts, creates, carves and waxes to the point where he is happy to add them to his 'Rustic Woodland' range of dressed, and undressed furniture and accessories.

When Julia is not busy stitching tiny owl or cat themed samplers and cushions to match the fantasy theme, she happily helps to dress the furniture, using many of Hywel's handmade accessories, dragons and pumpkins!
