Mix boric acid (roach powder) and denatured alcohol and dip or paint this on your sterling , light it, but your bezel on add flux and solder, heat finished.
the boric/alcohol serves 2 purposes, first cleans your sterling, secondly helps eliminating fire scoff. As far as  solder being dirty etc, some of the solder I use is from the'70's and is basically black.

Good luck and keep at it.
