Video Summary written for Pioneer Imports & Wholesale by: Lisa B.


A fresh take on the popularity of succulents in wedding arrangements and interior décor, this video features a natural corsage created using Pioneer’s beautiful Avery corsage bracelet decorated with permanent botanical echeveria succulents and stylish coordinates. 


Vonda LaFever, AIFD, PFCI, CFD walks through the process of building this corsage step-by-step. Vonda starts with a tour of the three colors of Avery corsage bracelet available from Pioneer – licorice, champagne, and sugar. 

Using the champagne bracelet, Vonda begins by tying off the ribbon to secure the bracelet to the convenient design disc that will serve as a platform to hold the cuttings of greenery. She also secures a piece of chenille stem that will come in handy throughout the tutorial.

Vonda lays cutting from an artificial string of pearls succulent across the design disc, twisting the chenille stem to hold it in place. Using pliers to coil the remaining chenille stem adds more gluing surface for the following steps.

Next, Vonda begins adding succulents to the corsage. She places glue on the design disc as well as the succulents for an almost magnetic effect – if you watch the related design video about gluing, this technique is very similar. Adding more glue to the disc allows for more insertions. 

The result is a beautiful wrist corsage that uses only succulents with no ribbons. Compared to traditional floral corsages, this design offers a more modern and up-to-date look that integrates current trends – a fantastic accessory for weddings, prom, and other fashion forward events.

You can find all the products used to create this corsage by browsing the Pioneer Imports & Wholesale website – or, use the catalog to find other silk flowers and foliage that might spark your imagination for other new looks to try.
