How do I solder sterling silver? Answered

I want to know how to solder sterling silver earring posts to sterling earrings.

Like this. The technique of getting the posts on without melting them is that you either bury them in the soldering block and let the earring drop down on them when the solder melts or you heat the earring until the solder melts and then quickly place the post in the puddle of solder-take the heat away the instant that the solder flows onto the post or you will melt the post.
