I fabricated a shower curtain rail out of 22mm copper water pipe and end-feed joints. Sprayed it gloss black and needed some bespoke mounting brackets. Wanted something quick and minimalist - this was my favourite design.
It utilises black nylon tiewraps to actually hold the shower curtain rail to the brackets. The tiewraps pass through the body of the bracket and are tightened over the rail, thus holding it tightly in the sculpted lugs.
The tiewraps also remove the need for any unnecessarily intricate clip designs in order to retain the rail.
The design allows for mounting with an 8mm diameter head screw of a suitable length.

Drew the profile in Fusion 360, then rotated the profile around the centre axis to form a solid object. Punched a hole through for the tiewrap, then smoothed all the edges.
Rotate vertically around the origin (the red dot) to make a solid object
