Plunging the Ends to the Back Side

Anna Scott's latest embroidery use metal threads for accents, so she has to figure out how to plunge the ends of this rather fat thread to the back and secure them well.  I thought you'd find it interesting how she uses a loop to lasso the end to yank them to the back and then unwraps the metallic foil to secure the back side.  Personally I'd be very worried about unwrapping the thread on the back as it might start to unwrap on the front but all this is food for thought.  After all, we have wired threads and beading wire, not to mention goldwork threads, to handle in our stitching lives.
