2017 has been a cold year for chains so far. Never one to take a challenge lightly, John Mayer has entered the fray with an instantly classic piece: the “Nano-Jesus.” Mayer took to Instagram to flaunt, proclaiming it “THE TINIEST CHAIN IN MUSIC (Emphasis is Mayer’s own).” Mayer paid jeweler Ben Baller “like $800” for the white gold chain. According to Baller, he had to go to Estonia to find a precise enough laser machine to engrave Mayer’s latest album title, The Search For Everything, on the back of the 2.7 gram, 14k chain (Jesus’s eyes are twin VVS diamonds). Baller managed to finish up the chain just in time to present it to Mayer before his show in Los Angeles.
Check out Mayer’s Instagram post below and be sure to check out Baller’s heftier work, like his Marilyn Manson chain that he made for Lil Uzi Vert’s Coachella performance.
