Question Are flattened painted bottlecaps safe?

I know there are two different kinds of flattened painted bottlecaps... factory and homemade. But I was wondering, are they safe?

A few of Christine's toddler friends were over at the house on Friday and I noticed that one of the younger girls (she's almost 4) was sucking and biting on her flattened, painted bottlecap necklace. Her mom called her over to put more sun screen on her and I noticed the paint was chipped off in several different places. Then, I noticed a small chip of it on her bottom lip. After I pointed it out to the mom, she took the necklace off her and sent her into the pool.

I'm wondering... is the paint child-safe and non-toxic? Is it lead free?
