Maybe you can try the European version of the ari hook? It's called a tambour hook, and you can find them (though it takes some searching) through ebay. I believe the principle of embroidering with a tambour needle is very similar to Indian zardosi. Maybe worth a try?

Here we call it a Lunéville hook, as it comes from a town of the East of France.
I might try it. I just want to find a cheap alternative, as the one I have got blunt quite quickly.

With the Lunéville, you can only change the head.
