An alternative involving LaTeX as well, and producing "curlier"  
braces than \underbrace or \overbrace: typeset in LaTeXiT the input

%\Bigggl\{ \quad
%\bigggl\{ \quad
\Biggl\{ \quad
\biggl\{ \quad
\Bigl\{ \quad

(the first two lines are for the Lucida fonts which include the  
additional sizes). This will produce a "catalog" of the curly braces  
that LaTeX can produce. Export as PDF, then open in Illustrator, and  
then copy/paste, resize and rotate at will.
