boston_guy,

Not as elegant as the designs shown by John Smith, but perhaps stronger and cheaper alternatives may be found by browsing the plumbing section at a home center. It might yield hardware that will meet your requirements. Specifically, looking at the various in stock pipe hangers could allow for flexible and strong supports for rods on which pots, pans, and various other items could attach.

For example, a ceiling hanger plate for supporting pipes can accept a steel rod.

The ceiling hanger plate can be screwed to the shelf support and a rod threaded into the ceiling hanger plate. Locktite would keep the threaded rod from coming loose and a piece of snug-fitting Tygon tubing or black rubber tubing could be slipped over the threaded rod, giving the rod on which items are hung some grip while protecting hung items from the threads. The threaded rod can be cut to whatever length is needed.
