Brass is an alloy of copper and Zinc. In modern Brass there shouldn't be any free lead.

As said, unfortunately poor pictures, What happens if your finger isn't the same size as the pipe. 1/2 inch copper pipe wouldn't fit my finger for example.

I don't understand what the salt, battery etc is for. perhaps because of the poor pictures.

Copper jewellery has been made for thousands of years, you can chemically treat it to colour it as well as prevent your fingers going green. In general the green isn't harmful, indeed may people wear copper bracelets as a prevention for rheumatism.

I agree with the comments about the photos.  Anything in focus is better than anything out of focus. 

Also copper will turn your finger green.  That's not a problem for most people but it's what happens.  That is another reason to paint the part that touches your skin.  The paint will wear off and then you repaint it. 

We used to make brass rings out of slugs of brass.  Brass turns your finger green, too.  And I guess brass is commonly mixed with lead so brass rings probably would not be a good idea.

Good concept.  A thought would be to coat the inside with clear nail polish - because a lot of people are allergic to copper

Good effort, but your pictures need a lot of work.  It's better to have a zoomed out picture in focus, then crop the resulting picture; than it is to try to get a close up shot and be out of focus.
