Hugo studied product design, jewellery making and visual arts in Portugal and Finland. He moved to London in 2012, where he honed his skills in the jewellery sector, creating pieces for European jewellery houses.
The launch of his brand HUGO MADUREIRA in 2020 was a natural and, much longed for, next step.
His brand is influenced by an abundance of natural and geometric forms observed in diverse locations around the globe and frequently captured on camera. Travel is an essential component of his creations.
Hugo's website contains many of the images he has caught on camera over the last two decades. The influences are readily seen alongside his jewellery collections and frequently contextualise his work.
2022 marks Hugo's partial return to Portugal following the completion of a lengthy house restoration in Lisbon.
