Finklepott's Original Fairy Hair™ - is the finest quality fairy hair. We proudly and exclusively use Finklepott's Original Fairy Hair ™, which we tie to one strand of hair. It will last until that strand of hair falls out. It can last months or a day...when you lose that hair, who can say?
You can wash it, brush it, comb it, curl it, color it, straighten it blow it dry, get a haircut with it in. Do whatever you normally do to your hair but most of all, enjoy it!


The powerful spirit of Marty Broda is evident in her Gaia Spirit Stick creations - tall walking stick staffs, talking sticks, dream catchers, wall pieces, each made with reverence toward all beings and designed to manifest specific qualities and dreams.

Rabbits have long been a favorite subject. Those ears! My first attraction came as a kid when I learned from a Chinese restaurant menu that I was born in the Year of the Rabbit. Then in elementary school, I had the good luck to draw our school mascot, a Jack rabbit, which later became the school’s logo. 

This group of rabbit paintings started as a theme for a show at the MadHatter Bakeshop and Cafe in Durham. “Alice in Wonderland,” the white rabbit, and off I went. Some of that original group have sold, and I’ve added some to this mix. 

A friend pointed out that rabbits can be a symbol of listening. I like that, too.

Stellaria will perform a few of our songs at the beginning of the evening, and then lead everyone in singing songs by Cynthia and others, to celebrate the arrival of Spring!  Sandra Brooks-Mathers (of Pomegranate Rose) will join us in leading rounds and adding harmonies for our sing-along.
Stellaria is a women's duo performing original, sacred, lively, and heartfelt music. Cynthia Crossen and Lea Clayton blend their voices in angelic harmonies, a capella or accompanied by various combinations of guitar, banjo, piano, flute, and percussion. 

Cynthia has shared her original songs in the Triangle area since the mid-1970's in various venues from coffeehouses to concert halls, bringing her music to the community at births, weddings, and funerals.  Lea has also performed widely in the area, including with the Haw River Learning Celebration and Paperhand Puppet Intervention. 

Stellaria sings for compassion, community, connection, the sacredness of our earth, kindness to each other, and the recognition of women's voices.
