Jelita Arts was founded in 2004 in Bellingham, WA. “Jelita” means “beautiful” in Indonesian. Jelita Arts is owned and operated by Julia Clauset and assisted by her husband, Karl. Julia grew up in Asia working in her grandfather’s store and inherited her love and appreciation for antiques from her grandmother. She acquires antiques and collectibles through buying expeditions, reputable importers, and estate sales and auctions. Every object acquired becomes a learning opportunity for research about the object and its context.
Julia is also an artist and she hand paints art nouveau-inspired designs on jackets, vests, porcelain, tiles, and glass. Her current project is creating origami sculptures.
