Toe Ring Queen's story begins when founder Kathy Mursch was looking for a unique way to celebrate a milestone birthday. She wanted to do something out of the box - but not WAY out of the box! Kathy decided to start small. About the size of a toe. A fitted toe ring!
Kathy soon realized that a fitted toe ring was no ordinary toe ring. It didn't have a gap in the back to pinch around a toe, and there was no elastic to stretch around. NO, this was a real piece of jewelry. It was a small sterling silver ring with lots of sparkly cubic zirconias all the way around it. It was gorgeous.
Kathy's sparkly toe ring made her endlessly happy. Having it on her toe made her feel equal parts wild and adorable, and she was simply amazed at how comfortable it was. The first few days she felt it when she wiggled her toes, but after a couple of weeks she hardly noticed it at all. It wasn't long before Kathy knew she needed another one. She had become addicted to toe rings. She quickly started a collection, and continued stacking various styles on eight of her little piggies. Kathy now wears 21 toe rings all the time, and she walks several miles everyday in her tennis shoes. She doesn't take them off to shower or exercise or get pedicures.
Kathy really wanted to share her newfound joy with the world, and these sized, professionally-fitted toe rings are not easy to find. Thus, a business was born, and her husband Doug joined the venture, and they traveled both near and far to exhibit at fairs and festivals across the great state of Texas.
In 2013 Toe Ring Queen and family lost Doug, and the Queen had to take a brief hiatus. Now Kathy continues Toe Ring Queen's mission of making the world more beautiful, one toe at a time.

"I went to my first toe ring party yesterday, and I was very nervous because I am a large gal. I figured that there probably wouldn't be rings big enough for my toes, but I was SOOOOOOOO wrong. I found out I actually have small toes! I am now sporting my awesome new toe rings, and they feel great and look amazing! Thanks to Lori for having me over, and thanks to Toe Ring Queen for making a busy mom of 5 feel Sexy and cute! "

"My new toe ring fits perfectly - thank you for exchanging it so promptly! I've bought three of my four toe rings from you and have been wonderfully satisfied with each of them. The fourth from a competitor...not so happy with it."
"I met Kathy tonight at Oktoberfest in Addison. I loved the toe rings so much that I went back to her before leaving and purchased 6 more! Now I have one on each toe. I love, love, love them!"
"Hi Toe Ring Queen! Have I told you I love you???!!!"

"I had a toe ring party with Kathy 2 years ago and loved my toe rings. Kathy is a wonderful person and is super at fitting your toe rings. I just saw her at the Pecan Street Festival and decided to switch to the 14kt gold ring. I love it, it always stays shiny and I don't ever have to polish it. Thanks Kathy, I'm sure I'll see you again."
"I have been wearing my toe rings for two years now. I absolutely love them! Each year I catch up with Kathy and Doug at Pecan Street Fest and even followed them to the Swampfest in Buda last weekend. I brought two of my other fellow bellydancers with me. I never take off my rings. They stay on when I swim, and when I exercise - zumba, spin, you name it! I don't even feel them. Love love them!!!!"
"I am LOVING my new 14k gold toe ring that I got at Pecan Street in Austin. It is so much shinier than my other ones."
"Got my first set of rings at the R.O.T. Rally and love them. You did notice I said my "first" set!!!! I was impressed that Doug noticed that my feet were swollen from the heat and walking and made sure to talk to me about the fit. My feet are now not swollen and the rings are PERFECT!"
"Got a toe ring at the ROT in Austin this year - Love it! I haven't taken it off and it's so comfortable."
"Thanks for "thumpin" in Luling, Kathy and Doug. Love my toe rings. Glad I bought sets for both feet! Can't wait to buy more in the future. I will keep checking the events calendar and try to meet up again somewhere. If not I will for sure find you in Luling next year. Am looking forward to continuing to show them off:)"

"I love the fit of my new toe rings!"
"I really enjoyed my experience with Toe Ring Queen. Kathy and Doug made me feel very comfortable and made sure I had exactly the right fit. People compliment me on my toe rings all the time! It makes me happy to wear them. I even can leave them on when wearing my highest most pointy heels and they’re still comfortable."

"I met Kathy at an event at the Dell Diamond last Spring... I was SO excited by my new toe rings (had never worn before) that I asked her about a party. I actually am throwing one this Sunday and have about 30 people coming. These are so fun and Kathy has been so helpful and courteous.... GREAT business and customer service... recommend her to all :)"
“Thank you for the GREAT customer service. I love my toe rings."
"I went on my morning walk/jog this morning and both my toe and ring feel great. Thanks again."
"I just absolutely love my rings. I can't say enough about them. And besides how great they look, I NEVER take them off....I exercise, run, ride my dirt bike, my mountain bike, swim and you name it. I want more."
I am from Houston, and I met Kathy in Austin at a festival; Kathy fit my rings and I loved them so much I went back, that same day, and got two more!!
Because I did so much walking at the festival, my feet must have swollen when I got fit for the toe rings. The next day, my rings we slightly loose and in a panic I called Kathy. Kathy promised that if I sent the rings back in an envelope she would send them right back in a smaller size, and that she did! – Right back!!
It took two tries but I finally got the look I was going for. Kathy has a great selection and I love my rings, so much so that I am thinking of meeting her at her next festival to get one for another toe!!! Thanks again Kathy, you made this such a pleasant experience!"
