Jewelry that celebrates Phenomenal Women!

Are you a "Phenomenal Woman", a curvy girl, A BBW(Big Beautiful Woman)?  


I have some beautiful necklaces and pendants (in my Etsy Shop, ZaftigDelights), that celebrate you and all that you are! 


And my favorite poem...


         "Phenomenal Woman" ~ by Maya Angelou


           Pretty women wonder where my secret
               lies   I'm not cute or built to       
           suit a model's fashion size   But
               when I start to tell them
              They think I'm telling lies.
              I say  It's in the reach of my arms
               The span of my hips
                The stride of my steps
                 The curl of my lips.
              I'm a woman Phenomenally
                  Phenomenal woman
                        That's me.

             I walk into a room
              Just as cool as you please
             and to a man
            The fellows stand or
             Fall down on their knees
            Then they swarm around me
              A hive of honey bees
                 I say
             It's the fire in my eyes
              And the flash of my teeth
               The swing of my waist
                 And the joy in my feet.
              Phenomenally
                 Phenomenal woman
                     That's me. 
          
            Men themselves have wondered
             What they see in me
              They try so much
             But they can't touch
               My inner mystery.
            When I try to show them
              They say they still can't see.
                  I say
             It's the arch of my back
              The sun of my smile
               The ride of my breasts
                The grace of my style.
              I'm a woman
               Phenomenally
                  Phenomenal woman
                      That's me.
    
            Now you understand
          Just why my head's not bowed 
           I don't shout or jump about
            Or have to talk real loud
             When you see me passing
              It ought to make you proud.
                   I say
            It's in the click of my heels
             The bend of my hair
               The palm of my hand
                 The need for my care.
             Cause I'm a woman
              Phenomenally
                Phenomenal woman
                      That's me. 











Be phenomenal!
