yes I believe you can. Solder used to connect pipes in your house probably contains silver, because lead cannot be used for obvious reasons. I am in the process of 'tinning' my entire heatercore with silver solder to make it look cool. Yeah, I was board. but it looks cool.

I've never tried to solder actual silver, but I use silver solder for almost all of my electronics/ R/C car work. Works great, so I'd thing you could solder solid silver.
