Under the name Djado Designs, she has maintained a studio as a goldsmith since 1992. She holds a Masters Degree in Art History and a Certificate of Advanced Studies in Medieval Civilization from the University of Poitiers, France. In 1987, she graduated with honours in photography at Emily Carr College of Art and Design, and in 1992, she received a Diploma in Jewellery Art & Design from Vancouver Community College. For the last nine years, Dominique has been teaching jewellery classes with the Vancouver school board, and since September 2000, with Vancouver Community College.
