Boryana Straubel, founder of the the jewelry company Generation Collection, has died.

She was 38, The New York Times reports.

Straubel was hit by a car while riding her bicycle in Washoe County, NV.

Generation Collection, which opened in April, makes use of recycled metals for its designs. She formed the company after she “learned that precious metals like gold were a large component of electronic waste,” according to The Times.

Straubel was born in Bulgaria and arrived in the U.S. in 2005 and earned a degree in economics at the University of California at Berkeley. She joined Tesla and worked in several areas of the business, including human resources.

She was married to Jeffrey Brian Straubel, a co-founder of Tesla.

Thinking of Liquidating? Wilkerson’s Got You Covered

Bil Holehan, the manager of Julianna’s Fine Jewelry in Corte Madera, Calif., decided to go on to the next chapter of his life when the store’s owner and namesake told him she was set to retire. Before they left, Holehan says they decided to liquidate some of the store’s aging inventory. They chose Wilkerson for the sale. Why? “Friends had done their sales with Wilkerson and they were very satisfied,” says Holehan. He’d enthusiastically recommend Wilkerson to anyone looking to stage a liquidation or going-out-of-business sale. “There were no surprises,” he says. “They were very professional in their assessment of our store, what we could expect from the sale and they were very detailed in their projections. They were pretty much on the money.”
