At NightRider Jewelry our work is a tribute, a tribute to art, to craftsmanship, to real Americans, and to our common belief that a love of Freedom isn’t something this country should hide. It’s a commitment that takes courage to display in a time when the masses seem content to watch those freedoms fade away.
We view our jewelry as a public canvas. Public, because most art hangs in private galleries, or in homes behind closed doors. Not our jewelry. It’s right there, on the street and in your face. Far more than a shiny little trinket made in China. It’s a skillfully designed statement about who you are and the Freedoms you believe in, displayed front and center. It doesn’t care if the weak can’t handle the strength of your message.
Your bold support of true Freedom fuels us. Our greatest honor comes when we watch our artwork become a staple of your identity. When you look down and see our work against your skin, you know it’s more than silver or gold. You’re seeing the blood, sweat and tears of true American artisans; a window into the soul of a brother or sister who stands firmly for Freedom. Above all, those you see wearing NightRider jewelry are part of the tribe. From us, they will always be treated like the family they have become.
This story was borne from a deep love and the relentless determination that comes when someone says you can’t do something.
Our vision of jewelry is old school. It’s the kind of work that only comes from a master craftsman or silversmith consumed with creating magic. That one-of-a-kind piece designed specifically for you, not the masses. That’s how it used to be done. These days, true craftsmanship has been kicked out the door by companies more focused on cheap labor and cost savings. Not us.
It didn’t take long to realize if we were ever going to get exactly what we wanted, we’d have to make it ourselves. Our enthusiasm wasn’t very well received. Every avenue we pursued led to industry ‘experts’ who tried to change our minds. They said we had to rethink our art to pander to the masses. We’d have to get rid of the ‘Freedom or Death’ and skulls that define our work. The final straw was telling us an American product couldn’t compete, we’d never make a living crafting these pieces here at home and we’d have to take production overseas.
Deep down, they were really saying we’d have to abandon our American dream.
One of the many things we love about this country and her people: Americans don’t take kindly to people telling us we can’t do something. For us, the choice was clear. We will not turn our back on the country that built us. We will do it the hard way and we’ll do it the right way–a mantra that used to be the American way.
Our American dream was born a few years ago, in our garage, by our own hands, in the dead heat of an Arizona desert summer. We know we might not grow as big as the lifeless brands that fill the stores. We’re okay with that. Every job we bring to our community is worth it. This mentality will never change. We’ll give our heart and our hands to our craft, right here at home in Chandler, Arizona. When we sign our pieces with NightRider and USA, you can bet they’ll be signed with pride because our veins aren’t the only ones that still pump red, white, and blue. Together, we intend to prove it one piece at a time.
We believe that the principles that lead to success are the same in life and in business. Our strategy for business is simple. We find people that agree with us and our cause and then we ask them to join us. For us to succeed it is vital that every member we add to our team is 100% committed to our culture. The recipe for our culture is the core values that we frame our company around. These are our lucky 13:
1. Keep perspective of what’s really important. Always start and end with why.
2. Stay grounded and humble. No Egos allowed.
3. Always stay hungry. Never be satisfied with where you are, always push yourself to learn and grow.
4. Commit to only doing your greatest work. Doing a few things exceptionally is better than doing a lot of things pretty well.
5. Be honest. Real relationships are built on trust.
6. Commit to the team. A team united together will far surpass what the same individuals could accomplish on their own.
7. Take responsibility for yourself. There is nothing we respect more than when someone holds themselves accountable. “I’m sorry I made a mistake” goes a long way around here.
8. Lead by example. Real leaders lead from in front not above or behind.
9. Have gratitude. Be thankful for the opportunities that you have and the people that support you along the way regardless of the size of their contribution.
10. Find solutions not problems. Positive and determined attitudes are essential to turning obstacles into opportunity.
11. Work hard. The road to greatness is paved by hard work, discipline, and sacrifice.
12. Enjoy yourself. Spend your time doing things that make you happy with people that make you happy.
13. Be proud of who you are and what you do.
