Theme: Cross - The cross is one of the most ancient human symbols, and is used by many religions, such as Christianity.

Technique: Plique-à-jour, (French for "braid letting in daylight"} is a vitreous enamelling technique where the enamel is applied in cells, similar to cloisonné, but with no backing in the final product, so light can shine through the transparent or translucent enamel. It has a stained-glass like appearance and is considered very challanging technically. (From: Wikipedia)
