HI Maura - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Sure, you can do that. 

Created your custom field - go to Settings > Issues > Custom Fields

After the field has been created, you will need to do a search for the field, and then in the 3 dots menu to the right, select Contexts and Default value.

There you can edit the context to select a single project at the bottom. 

OK - I do not have Admin rights so I am not seeing that. Thank you!

Yes, you must be a Jira admin to be able to create and modify custom fields.

Are you working with a Company Managed project or a Team Managed project? It will say at the bottom of the navigation pane on the left.

The method for managing custom fields depends on the type of project.

It is company managed
