lets see here...
according to wikipedia, paper clips usually made out of steel
steel melts around 2500 °F, depending on the alloy
Lead-based solder melts at 250 °C to 280 °C or 300 °C while lead-free soldering needs a higher temperature, about 350 °C to 400 °C.
Unless you your soldering iron works on steroids, I don't think your going anywhere fast
please correct me if I'm wrong
that means you kelseymh
