Margaret Turner Designs


Coming from a long line of shellers, Margaret Turner followed her mother, grandmother, and aunts footsteps as she grew up along the North Carolina coast.  Her home is filled with shells from combing the sands of her favorite beaches, which include Wrightsville Beach, Masonboro and Bald Head Island.  Taking photographs of her ongoing collections, Margaret Turner Designs came to fruition, combining her love of shells and fashion sense into a line of beach-inspired scarves that include cotton voile and silk.  With an MBA from Rice University, Turner says it took time and soul searching to realize that scarves, the simplest form of cut and sew, were the ideal pursuit.  Margaret’s process begins with taking photographs of her shells, which are digitally printed in Durham, NC, and sent back to Margaret who cuts and sews the scarves herself.  The sand dollar is her favorite.

Please note that I can customize any scarf and/or blanket to your preference.  Please contact me if you wish to do that at There is also a tab for current press and a gallery of photographs I have taken of my scarves.  Feel free to also spend some time checking out what I am hunting and gathering on my blog: which is also a tab at the top of the page.  

Thank you for visiting!  Please get in touch, stay in touch, and if your shelling, tell me where and what your finding!  I can take what you find and make a new design!  Cheers!
