Keep them all for yourself or hand them out to your family and friends as fabulous Christmas presents!
The prizes for the Prize Draw Winner are as follows:
‘EVERLY’ BY SARADEN DESIGNS
New talented Irish designer Sarah O’Rourke has created this piece specially for Eclipse Magazine.
“The inspiration for this piece came from nature. Winter is coming and all the colour has gone from the garden but green is the colour which is always present no matter what the season. There are so many various shades of green in Ireland that I combined three different shades which complemented each other. I shaped the fabric into leaf shapes, they are flexible and can be manoeuvred into a chosen shape depending on how the wearer would like it to look.”
This is a piece of wearable art consisting of Saraden handmade fabric and mixed media. Perfect for a winter wedding or a day at the races, it will brighten up any ensemble.
VALUE: €150 from www.SaradenDesigns.com

WINSOR WRAP FROM LEGER & OAKS

The Leger & Oaks Windsor Wrap is an elegant and understated way to layer up and keep winter chills at bay, whether at country days out or in the town or city. A sophisticated tweed cover up with a simple turnover neck, the Windsor Wrap is an easy-to-wear piece that slips easily over the head and is carefully designed to hang neatly and flatter the figure.
The Windsor Wrap is versatile enough to complement a winter racing festival outfit or to transform an everyday jeans, shirt and boots look into something smart and elegant.

MINIATURE STALLION SCULPTURE FROM ELLIOT CHANNER
Staffordshire-born Elliot Channer has been decribed as one of the ‘young stars’ of the international art fair circuit. Influenced by the animal sculptures of Rembrandt Bugatti and Antoine-Louis Barye, he focuses on capturing the life and grace of the subject, concentrating on their key features but allowing spontaneity to make up the main body of the sculpture.
Alongside lifesize sculptures, he also scales down large animals creating more manageable sculptures. This Miniature Stallion is cast in Pewter.
VALUE: £60 from www.elliotchanner.co.uk

Karen can usually be found glued to her computer or at the stables. Having edited several national magazines she co-founded Eclipse Magazine in 2008 after realising that many of her friends were nervous about going racing due to lack of information – what to wear, how to bet etc.
She absolutely loves her job (how many people can say that?!) and is truly grateful to all supporters of and contributors to Eclipse Magazine.
If you are reading this she would like to say THANK YOU! (And please spread the word about Eclipse…!!)
