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.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
