About Us: The Steampunk Buddha ®
Custom Handmade Jewelry in Eureka Springs, Ar.
The Steampunk Buddha ® is a husband and wife who make jewelry art in their spare time. Featuring the jewelry and artwork of Rebecca Epp and Erik Epp, The Steampunk Buddha ® has something for everyone. Rebecca has been a whimsical steampunk artist for over 10 years.

Your business really makes a difference. Thank you for Shopping Small. The Steampunk Buddha does not have a physical location in Eureka Springs. This website IS our store. Everything you see on this site is already made and ready to ship to you. What we offer is handmade, custom-designed wearable art. No piece is the same. Each item is one of a kind. We do not offer classes or have a store in the downtown area but we do sell some of our pieces at Eureka Springs, Living Hi Coffee. If you would like to have something delivered in person while you are on vacation, please fill out our contact form or send us a message on Facebook.
Specializing in unique, original, handmade Steampunk, Natural Stone Jewelry, and Metaphysical styles, The Steampunk Buddha ® has a whimsical mix of many styles. Each necklace, talisman, ring, bracelet, or set of cufflinks are all handmade by The Steampunk Buddha’s artists. All of our wearable artwork is hand-painted and assembled in a different way. We pride ourselves in making every piece of art, unique in its own way. There is a story in every piece.
Each pendant, earring, purse hook, and cufflink is a bit different every time. Bright colors mixed with gothic or Halloween charms, or steampunk with hot pink accents are some of the many different types of wearable art that you will find here at The Steampunk Buddha ®. We are now beginning to start working on steampunk lamps and goggles. We will soon have Steampunk-themed Home Decor, Steampunk Teddy Bears, Steampunk Hats and Fascinators, and Cosplay gear. Keep coming back. You never know what we will have next.
The Origin of The Steampunk Buddha ®
The name “The Steampunk Buddha” originated from a private running joke between me and my husband. He used to be a bit overweight and he would always joke around telling me that I should rub his “Big Buddha Belly” for luck. When we started talking about expanding my jewelry business, he said that we needed to rub some Buddha Bellies for good luck. I laughed and said “Steampunk Buddha” bellies. So that is where we got our name! 🙂
Artist Spotlight: Bex
I’m Bex, owner, designer, and creator of The Steampunk Buddha ® .
I am an artist in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. I like to mix different components to come up with new styles and designs. I’m always working on coming up with new types of wearable artwork. The Steampunk Buddha ® is my eclectic mix of Steampunk and Whimsy wearable artwork and jewelry. I’ve been making jewelry since 2014. I feel like there is a little part of my soul in each piece that I create. Every piece of jewelry has its own backstory. Some people see the story right away others love hearing the story or discovering it for themselves. I never make the same thing twice so each individual item is your own piece of wearable artwork.
