James T. Cook, Designer Goldsmith


 James is a second-generation goldsmith, who started his love of making jewelry at a very young age watching his father create one-of-a-kind, hand-carved wax models in his studio in Amherst, NH. His father, Fran, in 1993 then moved into downtown Manchester at 1000 Elm St. then to 889 Elm St. where he closed his Manchester location to semi-retire and just work out of his Center Harbor store. After working and mentoring with his father for over 14 years, James and his wife, Sarah, decided to open Tates Gallery in New Boston, NH in October 2006. Sarah takes care of the day to day operations and assisting with customers to find the finest diamonds and colored gemstones the world has to offer. James works with each customer, personally, designing each piece of jewelry and then making each piece one by one in his workshop (casting and setting each stone). James works in 14/18k yellow and white, Platinum and Sterling Silver. Tates Gallery carries American-made and local artists, featuring fun jewelry, pottery, wood, hand-blown glass, metal sculptures, paintings and prints. We are becoming known as "the hidden gem in the woods". Come out and see us!
