I haven’t ever tried zari work, though many of the threads are similar to those used in goldwork. I’ve tried tambour work where the hook is on the other side of the fabric to the “beads”, but I understand the “beads” are on the same side as the very fine hook in zari work. I also have a very fine pointed latch hook for chain stitch.
