About Us

Coming from a long line of shellers, Margaret Turner Clarke 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 Kiawah Island, Wrightsville Beach, Masonboro Island, 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 and baby blankets.  With an MBA from Rice University, Clarke says it took time and soul searching to create a business based on her passion for the coastal outdoors.  Margaret's process begins with taking photographs of her shells, or by painting watercolors.  Margaret’s scarves and baby blankets are sold online at, and various retail stores in North and South Carolina.
